just a small update..
I went and moved the carboy from the bottom of the bathtub to the top of a cooler that is sitting in the bathtub and that sort of encouraged some of the gunk on top to start settling.. not sure if that was good or bad.. but i'm not to worried about it.
I wanted the carboy to sit in the elevated position so i don't have to move it before i start the syphon and stir up any more junk that i have to.
anyway.. in the past day or two the kreausen seems to have dissapated pretty well and i can now see the top of the beer when looking down on it.
I'm getting pretty anxious to bottle and be able to test some of this out.
Maybe a gravity reading is in order for tomorrow
thanks again everyone
