Have any of you fellas ever ran into a seemingly intelligently designed pattern in your krausen or some other seemingly odd pattern during fermentation? I was checking on my apfelwein today (on US05 for about a week so far) and ran into this! I think the yeast are trying to tell me something (oddly enough I worked at Target for 5 years lol)!

Yes, I've seen some of the most incredibles shapes created by the yeast. I bet these will occupy PhD students for few 100s of years

Pure art... That was for yeast's Halloween party, right?
We are only 10,000 years into beer... there are thousands of years left to go!
