Jurassic Amber Fermentation

On May 18, 2008, in Homebrewing, by Mark Ranes

The Jurassic Amber Ale is fermenting wildly!  It was going well five hours after hitting the carboy.  It’s not coming out of the blowoff tube, but the wort is convecting like crazy in the carboy.  You have to love big ‘ole yeast starters:)
