Insane Fermentation

Postby Push Eject » Tue May 17, 2005 12:28 am

So this past weekend I brewed a batch of barleywine.

While it was boiling I racked a pale ale out of primary and into secondary leaving its yeast behind for the barleywine to go into...

This is the result: a crazy, violent fermenting mass that looks and smells amazing:

I have never seen a primary take off so quickly (within 90 minutes) or ferment so visibly.

Specs:
OG 1.103
temp: 74 F
yeast: WYeast 1056 from slurry
oxygenated with pure, filtered oxygen for 3 minutes

It has been slow around hasn't it? BTW I couldn't get the QuickTime thing to function, so I'm missing out on your violent primary :(

Uh oh, really?! It's REALLY basic compression so I can't imagine you don't have the codec.

Let me know if that works!

ive been using safale dry yeast on cheap beers to make them even cheaper. I see this same type of activity every time with that yeast. Even on lower gravity beers. Im fermenting around 67 deg.
You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.
