    Hefeweizen - low krausen?

    I started my hefeweizen on the 20th (yesterday) and it seemed it got a slow start I guess. The photo below is after like 27 hours. Is this too low of a krausen? Should it be larger? Should I be worried?

    Woohoo! Almost a brewer!

    I know I said that no one was going to change my mind and I was going to start off with brewing all grain right off the bat. Well.....I stand corrected (going with malt extract). Last night I ordered my first brew equipment from Northern Brewer and here they are: Deluxe Starter Kit...
