Foamy Yeast

This is MA33 in Pineapple / Orange / Grapefruit (also known as POG)

Foams a bit doesn't it  :lol: I think its worse than EC-1118 which tried to escape out of the air lock several times  ::)

Once the fizzing has died down, you need to top up with sugar water to leave as little airspace as possible.   ;)   Cheers,     Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

That's the primary, Not much chance of oxidation with 2 inches of foam and layer of CO2 sitting on it - but I know what you're getting at  ;) Its due for just over 1 ltr of water when it stops looking like the quatermass experiment  :D

Mine had guava in and it made a really nasty sticky mess all over floor.  :blush: Actually that's the one taking forever to clear  >:(

The current elderberry cordial batches I have on the go each had a 1.5" head of bright purple scummy foam on the second day!  it's subsided a lot since.

I've come to think (in my very limited homebrew experience) of the first few days of the primary as the "bready phase".  I was interested to read over the weekend that this foam on fermenting liquour has been skimmed off and used as the yeast starter for breadmaking.  I might try that one day with the head from a batch of TC.
