So this is my first attempt. I pitched on Saturday around 8pm, and when I woke up Sunday, there were pretty much constant bubbles, and then by the end of the day on Sunday, there was about 2 inches of foam on top and the bubbling had increased.
As of Monday night, the bubbling had slowed dramtically (once every 10 seconds.) And now on Tuesday morning, I sat there for about a minute and saw nothing, and foam on top has gone.
It seems to me that the problem (if there is one) is the yeast production. I could understand if the yeast was bad or if I didn't provide a very hospitable environment (this is my first time.) I'm confused though, because I think that if that were the case there wouldn't have been any action the day after pitching.
Any tips? Should I get some more yeast and repitch? Or is this a lost cause.
Here is the recipe i'm using: Amazon.com: True Brew Red Ale Home Brew Beer Ingredient Kit: Kitchen & Dining
I would really appreciate any tips.
