Hmm, you will all be tired of my insidious questions soon enough! BUT, please let me use your advanced knowledge once again. My friend dug the English pale I made and so I was making more to split w/ him. Very simple Wyeast Brit Pale yeast, 3.3 can of light, 2 pounds of light spraymalt, Kent goldings pellets, Argentine Cascade pellets (substituted for the absent Perle), basically I just used what was in the Brewer's Best kit I bought a while back, with a few subs, obviously. Well, after pitching the yeast it took 12 hours and the thing got going, bubbling vigorously about 18 to 24 hours after that it slowed downl. A LOT. Maybe one bubble every 30 seconds, now it's 2 and a half days later and it's bubbling, oh, once every 2 hours! What happened? Also, I used buckets for the first batches I did and have used the carboy on the last 3 but this one looks way different already. I am used to the thick, frothy top layer but this only has a strange skim that is now separating into 'lillypad' like light-greyish ovals. Weird looking, but I am new, so I don't know what this all means. Thanks for reading this and for your help.
