GSX-R1.104 and Big Slick

Well GSX-R1.099 ended up with an OG of 1.104, so I'll have to change its name to GSX-R1.104. I pitched yeast at like 1:45, so it was much quicker than an all grain batch. The fermentation was bananas, though. This morning, I could smell the fermenting gases in the living room, upstairs from the basement fermentation chamber. I thought, "well it must be really working". I got a chance to go down there, and found that the lid was popped off. The fermentation must have been so vigorous that it clogged the airlock, and eventually built up enough pressure to pop the lid on the plastic bucket. Good thing I wasn't using a glass carboy...

And I pitched the yeast starter to Big Slick, but it didn't seem to help. We'll see.

Gotta go
