Morning all, I racked up my first brew last night (the Wilko's Hoppy Copper Bitter) and after cleaning out the FV I thought it'd be a shame to leave it empty (plus I'd bought a second one earlier in the day) so I cracked open the stout kit and got on with it. I slightly under filled it to 21 litres instead of the 23 it recommends with a hydrometer reading of 1042. Cracked in the yeast at about 25 / 26 degrees and sealed it up tight. As my house is cold as hell I again wrapped up the FV to keep the chill off. I checked it this morning to find it happily bubbling away through the airlock. I checked the temp before leaving for work to see it around 23 / 24. I've eased off the blanket around it to cool off a little so hopefully it should level out at the 20 ish area. That or I'll have a kitchen full of foam when I get home from work Anyways, second kit underway with the first prepping in the pressure keg. I now want to go out and buy more stuff as having two on the go just isn't enough. DAMN YOU HOME BREWING! I love it really and would defiantly say I've caught the bug.
