Yeast and Fermentation / Wyeast 3068 Weihenstephan Wheat

I had a strange experience with this the other night.  I pitched it directly into my carboy - the temp was a bit warm 78ish but it was late.  Woke up the next morning and no bubbles in the air lock yet  so I gave it a shake to aerate it and the head space in the 6 gal carboy instantly filled up and foam was spraying out through the air lock.  It was like I dropped a mentos into a coke.

Can anyone explain what happened?

Thanks that's what I was wondering about I have a 8 gal pot so I'll start with 4.5 to 5 gal of water and half the extract.

I'm in the same boat little kids - I've brewed all but one batch after 8 pm on Sunday night.

I'm an extract brewer so I usually get done around midnight - the solitude is nice.

Brewing seems to go well but bottling is a b*tch

General Homebrew Discussion / Howmany Apples does it take
« on: September 01, 2010, 01:22:14 PM »
Ok I have access to an apple press and apples - how many apples do I need to get 5 gal. of cider?
It's an early apple crop with lots of utility grade apples avaialbe so it's cider making time.

General Homebrew Discussion / Cleaning soot of the brew pot

I just got a new propane burner and it's leaving a lot of soot on the brew pot

what's the best method / cleaning agent for removing the soot build up?

it stands for Wally's Ale Haus  and also my dad's initials

He was a brewmaster for Schmidt's Brewery when I was growing up - now that he's in his 80's I decided to try homebrewing and pick his brain for advice and ideas - and see if I can brew something he likes.
