Hi guys,

I'm on my second home brew batch after a very successful first batch with the Festa Brew Pilsner (came out amazing!).

I started a Festa Cream Ale in the primary on April 4th, and it did nothing for a few days. And I mean nothing. I was worried about an infection, and I think I may have shocked the yeast with water that was a tad too hot. It started fermenting yesterday, but there's really not a lot of foam, but lots of bubbles. The pilsner has a good inch of foam at the top while it was fermenting.

I'm assuming every type of beer ferments differently and I know something is happening in the primary.

Newbie worry - does it look ok in the photo?

Thanks guys. Did a gravity reading yesterday and it is moving along fine. There was actually about an inch of foam today. I think it was a case of me either shocking the yeast or this beer just taking longer.
