Amazing yeast, pitched a big starter into my Octoberfest Hefeweizen last saturday afternoon, huge eruption sunday lasted for 2 days, today is day 8 and its still bubbling every 15 seconds. Most of my beers finish in 3-4 days.

Yup, WLP300 is a monster unless you control its temp in the low-mid 60's.

t-minus 12 days and this is still bubbling. I pulled the fermenter cap to look in and there is still a 3" krusan on top. my Og was 1.054 about where most of my ales fall. Very interesting yeast

CO2 can come out of solution for days after fermentation and with all the wheat protein in there you have excellent head retention capabilities so the krausen will stay about even once the bubbling is all over if you check your gravity I bet your finished.

Be careful when you take a sample all hefeweizen yeasts are really hungry you might even hear them growl at you.

This batch is more of a Dark hefe with Vienna, Munich, and a touch of Caramunich. I'm having an Octoberfest party and wanted to try something a little different
