This was pitched two hours ago. Now there is a lot of sediment already and these weird finger like appendages sticking up from the bottom. Is this normal?

Edit: And the top is totally smooth, no krausen.

This was a Fuggel/Vienna SMaSH.

10 LBS Vienna (158, 170)
1 oz Fuggel (75 minutes)

Looks like the yeast have started their magical work.

I guess I have never noticed activity on the bottom before. Usually with the partial mashes that I have done before the activity starts on top and sediment falls from the krausen.

I had that happen with a belgian yeast I pitched...not sure if it was just all sediment from the boil (I didn't strain, just chilled and racked) or the yeast, but everything was fine...

By the way there is no "normal" fermentation when dealing with living microorganisms, those yeasties are as unpredictable as teenagers and swmbos...so there's no point in trying to compare one fermentation with another...it's always best just to RDWHAHB...

I not worried at all. I was just wondering what was causing the formations.

Anyhow, the formations are gone and everything is well this morning.

I'm cheap, didn't want to spend 15 bucks for the carrier.

So, I made my own, hopefully it doesn't break
