Wish I could be brewing in the middle of the week instead of just taking HBT breaks throughout the day.

Cheers!

I seem to be having a very slow fermentation. I'm using a blowoff tube and it's not really bubbling at all. I popped the lid today after8 days. There's a layer of foam and it smells really good.

What is the temperature of the fermenting wort? Colder the slower!

I just did a temp and gravity check. It looks great! Temp is 63F and gravity is at 1.026 (1.072 OG). Everything is on target for dry hop next week.
