Yeah now that you mentioned it, it was warmer then usual in my fermenting room, probably above or around 70 degs. , also did not test the gravity yet, my plan is to rack it on Wednesday with my buddy and i will test it then.. I appreciate everyones help, hopefully it turns out well. Thanks again

Yeast and Fermentation / Extremely Quick fermentation
« on: September 13, 2010, 05:05:57 PM »
Ok so I brewed a pumpkin ale last weak with my buddy for his first brew. I used 9.9 lbs (LME)with only 1 lb of specialty and 3 lbs of puree pumpkin ( raw unsweetened), I always use a yeast nutrient and and i used WL American Ale yeast. Fermentation started real well (less than 15 hrs) but by the 4th day (eveningtime) there was still minor airlock activity and the Kraus was already 98 % gone. I have not tested the gravity yet because It is difficulty and i i dont want to risk contamination... i did pitch another yeast, a WL California Ale yeast but I did not introduce any oxygen because i know that some fermentation had occured and i did not want to risk oxidation... based on the brief info, does anyone think it was just a rapid fermentation or do you think i lost fermentation at some point. I did not have a highly roused Krauss at anytime during the brief fermenting period, maybe 1 inch the 2nd and 3rd day. .... Please let me know what you guys think

Hey anyone who is from north jersey who is looking to do some collaborative brewing? I'm a brewer from Ringwood and I brew all grain, however i'm interested in brewing with anyone wether they are all grain or extract experienced. I am just looking for someone who enjoys brewing as much as I do who would like to share the passion. I am also thinking of begining a new Club, the Jersy Mountian Brewers for the homebrewers in the northern regions of passaic and bergen county. Ok anyone interested hit up this thread
