Coming along better than I hoped. Have a very nice yeast layer at the bottom. Will try to get a pic in the morning.

Could not get a good picture this morning but I did take a smell...It smells awesome. Just like a hydrometer sample of a real beer. Tonight I am going to boil up 1000ml of 1.030 wort and pitch this whole 500ml into it. Will give that a few days then cold crash, decant and do a 1000ml 1.040 and then do as many 1500ml 1.040 "starters" as needed to get a pitchable population.

Actually, I think I have changed my mind. I think I will go ahead and crash today and see what I have. Then 500ml of 1.030 tonight. I think I need to do this in much smaller steps than I had initially planned.

Everything is going great. The cold crash 4 days ago did not produce a cake so I just tossed in my 500ml of 1.030. I have a great population going. Nice creamy layer settling on the bottom. When I swirl it, I get a lot of CO2 coming out of solution. It is in the fridge right now and will decant tonight and pitch into 1000ml of 1.040. It looks like I have about half as much as is in a vial of commercial yeast.

I have yet to have any krausen or a really active fermentation at all yet but I guess that is to be expected...All I know is my population is growing. I need a stir plate.

Another step complete. Looking good. I think I will do a 1500ml of 1.040 this evening and that will be my last step. Plan on brewing an amber this weekend.
