Its day 10 of primary fermentation and its still bubbling every 5 seconds. The krausen is real low now and I dont see much activity in the beer itself. I still think something is up though because the first 3 days were very active. My friend who has been all grain brewing for the last 8 years says it should have slowed by now and keeps saying I might have a gusher infection. We shall see in a few days when I rack and check gravity.

After 11-12 days the Fermentation finally slowed and I think it might be fine. I will be racking into keg within the week. I dont think it's infected. Just took a while being real active.
