Thread: yeasties going crazy

  1. Default yeasties going crazy

    Hi, im a new mead brewer and am working on my first batch (thirsty viking's cysler) and have recently transfered from the primary to the secondary fermenter. The lil yeasties have gone into hyperdrive since the transfer, and the airlock is bubbling faster than during primary fermentation.

    Is this anything i should worry about?

    I sampled some when i transfered, and it was already most wonderful! it would be a shame if something is going wrong. :-/

    hopefully im just paranoid

    thanks

    IF you haven't added any additional ingrediants...I would guess that you may have gotten a fair amount of oxygen into the mix during the transfer thus helping the yeasts make little yeastie babies. Awwww aint the little gaffers cute! Dosen't sound like anything to worrie about, in fact sounds like crongradulations are in order...To the proud papa of a happy yeast comunity.

    Your racking may have caused a large amount of the CO2 in solution to offgas giving the impression of a renewed fermentation.

    Thanks, its nice to know nothing is wrong.

    My apartment has a no pets policy, but i think they will make an exception for my yeasties
