Yeast and Fermentation / vigorous fermentation
« on: August 05, 2013, 01:42:56 PM »
I started an Oktoberfest style ale, og 1.078, higher than I expected, and used an English ale yeast, which had higher temp tolerance.  I brewed on Saturday night pitched yeast at 70°-75°.  Sunday had an incredibly vigorous fermentation, and Monday morning has already slowed and the foam head was all but gone.  there was more than enough sugars and proteins, there was 2 layers of floatys. Is something wrong? ( pout it in water and covered with a shirt Monday morning)

 had anyone tried deseeding and quartering Apple's then putting them in a 5 gal boil adding with any of the other spices.  then mashed and strained post boil,  in place of juicing or pressing?
