Yes I am stirring it had a nice little vortex .This is the first one to do that to me on the stir plate . The fermentation was kick ass too had at least a 6 inch krausen .

What kind of yeast is that. I had that happen with WLP300 on the stir plate. Didn't take pictures.

Wyeast 3068 and the temp was 66° so its not a hot fermentation. I have used this yeast several times but its never done this to me

Maybe you need to stir faster? The stirring action should stop the formation of too much krausen. That thing looked violent!
