Can't figure out how to edit my previous post, although this one is actually editable...maybe because I used the quick-reply button? Anyway:
It's actually not 2" of lees. Optical illusion with the reflection of my carboard "pad" in the glass carboy
It's more like a quarter-inch of fine lees.
Funny thing is, I definitely detect a very slight burnt rubber-ish aroma from the airlock...will I need to rack again to get it off the lees? I'm thinking I'll just wait a couple months and see if the smell goes away. Although, it would be a great excuse to run out and buy another carboy, so I can finally start on batch #2...
