The yeast decided to throw a party in my fermentor. And from the looks of it, this party is off the chain! This is definitely the most active fermentation I’ve had to date. My 3-piece airlock is popping twice every 2 seconds. All this in less and 8 hours since I pitched the yeast.
I’m glad this fermentation is so lively. It means when I pitched the yeast, it was really healthy and ready to get started on producing a high-quality beer. It also means I reduced my risk of infection, since the wort will be active and not sitting around. I’ve had previous trouble during the stage – ala my first brew of burnt-rubber ale.
I’m really excited this brew is off to a great start, even if my invitation to the yeast party was lost in the mail.
*Note – I’m about a week ahead of my posts in the brewing process. This actually happened last Monday, but I wanted to get a post up about it.
