So what different character you notice with the stone square? anything that might not be attributable to the open fermentation in general?

Looks really neat by the way and it DOES look like whipped egg whites.

That's gorgeous. Makes me want to give up the whole airlock thing and just ferment in a loosely covered bucket so I can see what's going on! (Sadly, still haven't used the carboy. I like my buckets for how easy they are to work with and because I don't relish the idea of lifting/carrying 50lbs of slippery glass.  But I would love to see more of the fermentation.)

I had to recheck the title of the thread to make sure it wasn't dessert!

Me too. Did you contruct it? What kind of rock? How is it sealed?

Thanks
