Bubble Bubble Toil and no Trouble

The airlock on the Honey Nut Brown Ale is bubbling like mad.
Pretty cool to know that the British Ale yeast is doing it's solemn duty of converting sugar to alcohol.
Video below.


  1. Blimey - I've never had an airtrap go that fast before. Are you sure you didn't speed up the film? I put it down to the fact it is a British Ale yeast, of course! (Actually, a truly British yeast should stop after about half an hour of work and demand a tea break.)

  2. :) Good one Ben. The airlock is still bubbling pretty quickly but not as fast as it was. Those British yeasts sure are fighters. I may use a technique called "Yeast Washing" to save this strand when it's finished with the ferment.
