Okay. For some reason my picture is not posting. Suffice to say that I have more or less full Krausen.

Never mind, now I can! That is definitelty krausen, mine isn't that active. Did you step it up, aerate it, swirl it?

When I first transfered it into the growler I shook it heavily for a good 2 minutes to aerate. I also swirled it heavily this morning to aerate. No stepping up yet.

I appreciate your help. Yours looks great! Foil, airlock, or something else?

Sorry for the slow response...mine's been going slow. I never really got a krausen on it but it smells nicely tart and fruity. So I did step it up once, but nothing really happened. A few bubbles, but again no krausen or really active fermentation. So I guess I'll give it another couple weeks and go from there.
