Here is a first for me, it seems that my yeast have taken up residents in the trub/cold break material and it is all floating in very large chunks in the top of my fermenter. I have never seen this before, normally it all settles out then get stir up nicely during fermentation, then resettles. I sure hope it settles back to the bottom when the yeast are done doing their thing.

That does look a little unusual to me, how long has it been in the primary? Any strange odors?

Pitched the yeast just last night. As for smells, there is a nice hop aroma coming from the air lock.

However all seems to be well now, and the yeast are stirring up the trub like always. :D

The pictures are literally less than 2 hours apart. It is amazing how fast things change in the fermenter when the yeast kick into high gear.

Duct tape! Great idea!
It may not be pretty, but it gets the job done, and seems to stay in place even if it gets wet.

The phrase RDWHAHB saves the day again!

I noticed the duct tape volume gauge as well, very cool!
