Spreading the Joys of Home Brewing Throughout Philadelphia and the Universe!

Hey guys,

 

I checked on here to see if maybe this topic wasn't addressed, I don't think it was.  I tried my hand at my first (extract) stout.  I did a starter and after a few hours it was literally blowing the top off my flask.  I had about 1700ml of liquid in a 2l flask.  I put a blowoff on that and then cold crashed and decanted.  I brewed this past sunday and by monday morning ferm was going great.  Worried about the same problem I quickly switched out to a blowoff tube.  Now ferm has slowed to a crawl and I took a quick peek in the fermenter and it looks like the krausen has settled and ferm is almost completely done.  The airlock maybe bubbles every minute.  Am i worrying over nothing?  I've just never had a batch that has gone through it this quickly.  I know temperature isn't a problem as my basement has been in optimal conditions all week.

Did you pitch the second round of yeast? In any case, it sounds like it worked out very well, good job.

I look forward to tasting the Stout at a meeting in the not too distant future, but for now the Double White will be excellent as well! :)

No I didn't repitch, b/c it seemed like ferm was going, slow, but going. So I kept it in the primary a few days longer than usual. I probably could've kept it in the secondary a few more days as well. But it was at the FG and it was pretty clear, and I had the time. So I bottled.
If there's one thing I've learned in my short brewing career, it's that time + patience shall alleviate most and nearly all concerns :)
