So it's obviously time to bottle. I can tell when some of my Carboys start to have too much headspace that I need to bottle again.http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161122/4272fc1d27c464d012238e6cb2fa6293.jpg

I looked back and found that I had bottled 33 cases on 7/3/16. These were all empty then. I think I have a fermentation problem.

A "fermentation problem"? I don't see a problem unless you've run out of bottles...

The only fermentation problem you have is that there doesn't seem to be anything fermenting!

That's not where I do my fermentations at djxxx. That would be in a different part of the house where I have about 25 gallons going. If you look you can see 3 Carboys on the right with active yeast in them that are probably close to dry. I'll stir them with the Lee's in it for another 3-4 weeks before I stabilize/cold crash/rack.

Ah yes! Have to look closely to see those airlocks.

In that case, no problem!

Must say, I'm very envious of the space you have for brewing!

The carboys without airlocks. What are you using to seal them? I don't see any bungs. Plastic wrap?

I use clear packing/packaging tape to seal the tops

I want a pic where you're using the ENTIRE bathtub to ferment - no buckets. :)
