those are brewballs, they show the gravity without having to open it up, the 1.055 ball sank right away, the next ball to drop will be a 1.035 ball.

I have used Pacman a handful of times over the past year. It'll get through pretty much anything you throw at it. Good luck!

Yeah sometimes a little too much. A few smaller beers I made with it came out a little thin. I am making a st rogue red clone this weekend, hoping it leaved some character. Part of working with this yeast seems to be adding a lot of crystal malt to balance out.
