Default My post boil hydro test is fermenting!

So, I took a post boil hydro test sample and forgot to check the gravity after it cooled down. I left it in the garage for two days on accident (just forgot about it). When I got home last night I saw it and figured I should give it a test to see where my post boil was. When I grabbed the tube, I noticed it had krausen and was bubbling. Thought nothing of it really and pulled off the krausen and tested it (figured it was just break material). When I tested it I saw that my numbers were lower than my pre-boil and saw that it was still bubbling. So now I'm going to let it go and see what happens lol. Its still completely open.

Its obviously not enough to enjoy any of the product but I think I might try to get a little taste and try to cultivate the yeast and build it.

Just thought it was kinda a funny story.

Wild Yeast in the garage, or did you take a hydro after you pitched?

Wild yeast from the garage.

Let me tell you, its going crazy too. I don't know why I thought the krausen was just break material because it was at least an inch of krausen. I'm kinda excited for it. Really hope it is a wild yeast caught.
