Hope you're keeping the temperature under control. that fast a ferment can generate lots of heat. I might add, with that much crystal, you'll have a fairly high final gravity.

If by under control you mean in a closet, than yeah....

I've been monitoring closet temps throughout the last couple of days, it's stayed around 67-70 degrees the whole time.

Prolly a typo, but to me it appears the OP's FG is greater than OG:


Estimated Og: 1.066
Estimated Fg: 1.071
Bitterness: 33.7 IBU
Color: 12.2 SRM

Check the recipe:

Yeah, it is a typo, but it's fixed now. Thanks for pointing that out.

Well, if it's 70 degrees in your closet, it might be 78 degrees inside your fermenter. I recommend one of those stick on thermometers (like for aquariums) so you can monitor the actual temperature of the fermenter.
