I'm like a little kid on a long road trip... is it done yet??? I've been out of the homebrew scene for 15 years, and have decided to jump back in. I started a small batch (2.5 gal) of Dunkelweizen (an extract recipe with steeping grains and WLP300 yeast) last Friday. The fermentation kicked off in about 13 hours and went gang-busters for the next 24... Since then the action has slowed down (I suspect my bucket fermenter is not as air-tight as it was 15 years ago), but I am confident all is well. I want to leave it in the primary for two weeks, but I am getting soooo impatient. I'm dying to see how this turns out. I just barely peeled up a tiny corner of the lid, just enough to get a whiff, and DAYUM... it smells SOOO good. Bananas & cloves!!! Fortunately, I will be out of town for a week, so there's no way I give in to the temptation of getting my brew into bottles too soon. The anticipation is killing me!
