Well, you were right to say that it's not coming from the bottom. I took another look and it appears that I have a slow leak from the flo-valve. The way it was situated, everything was pooling up around the base. I took care of that so I'm off and running again.
also, at almost the 24 hour mark I finally have signs of fermentation. In my limited time brewing, I have had good activity with very little lag, so this took me off guard.
Krenshaw, do you aerate with the 02 before or after you pitch? I think I may have made a mistake and pitched first then the O2. It's my first time using it, so this can be a learning experience.
