Day 44 Progress on Big Dark Stout and Pineapple Tinker

Looks like the Big Dark Stout is beginning to slow…I counted 78 between bubbles, but it still kind of “perks” when it does off. It lets out about 3 or 4 bubbles in rapid succession and then nothing for over a minute. It probably still needs a couple more days in primary.

The Pineapple Tinker is bubbling at about 10 second intervals and appears to no longer have a pronounced third layer on the bottom and shows signs of beginning to clear.

No more obvious third layer.

The layer of blended pineapple bits is thick at the top. I guess when I rack the juice, I’ll be penetrating the top layer and siphoning from the bottom…while the top layer descends. Hmmm…that’ll be different. (Unless the top layer falls out before time to rack…never done pineapple before, so I don’t really know the behaviors.)

3:00 pm   Is it my imagination or is the pineapple layer getting smaller? The yeast might actually be breaking it down?

Still getting a bubble about every 10 seconds. Surprisingly, the Big Dark Stout airlock is going off at about every 10 to 12 seconds again, but it isn’t perking like it had been; just a single bubble at a time.
