ok so for my very first full boil everyone says that the 30 quart pot is the smallest and its to the brim so watch out.... anyways i filled it to an ich from brim (now i know i should of filled my fermenting bucket to about 6 gallons and tossed it in the kettle, i would have had alot more room) anyways its all extract this kit and i added a pound of corn sugar thank god or it would be very weak. It was 1.040 at about 70 degree and i realized its because i have about 6.3 gallons instead of 5... so what do you pros think? This is a cream ale... brewed to show my boring BMC drinkers some of the ropes of brewing. It all went great except my measuring of water. I hope this is drinkable. I slacked bad this time... i poured the wort into the fermenter hard to aerate. it was VERY foamy. Is that bad? or did it give the yeast oxygen? Ok, so i pitched the yeast at 68 degrees and its not been 24 hours but no activity yet.... i know they say wait 24-72 hours but my other 7 batches all were bubbling the next day. I told you of all the things i think i messed up... let me know what ya think. I hope this isnt watery and undrinkable, and hope it bubbles soon. I have a blow off tube on it because only have an inch or so of space in the bucket.
