The Yeast are Hungry

Can you hear them? They are hungry. Starving for sugar. The homebrew batch of Ending Summer Better, an ESB, has been fermenting in the Better Bottle for 2 days now and is in full swing.

A day ago, the wort temperature was around 72 degrees. Now during full fermentation, the wort temperature has risen to 78 degrees in a room that stays around 70 degrees all year long.

How long will this feast last? Hard to say, I expect this process to take up to 2 weeks in the primary and then a bit longer once racked off to a secondary fermenter.

Apparently yeast get all heated up during their pig-out session. Embedded below is a clip of the fermentation in full swing. See the full article for the video.

If you are not able to view the video, you can see it on YouTube:


Nom, nom, nom, nom, nom....

Feed well my yeasties. Make me some good beer. Can't wait until September to taste you.
