Brew day is done. It is bubbling away in the fermenter. I forgot to take an OG reading, was drinking while my brother was brewing. He decided to just go with the liquid yeast as it is. He is a much more, let's give it a try type than I am. I set it on the counter in the morning and he popped the internal package and waited about 4 hours while we did our thing. The bag swelled like it was supposed to, and off it went into the fermenter. I told him about the starter, but he just dumped it in and stirred it up. We will see in about 3 weeks what the results are. Stay tuned, more to come.
