Beer #5 -Crazy fermentation

Beer #5 didn't want to stay in the barrel on the first evening of it's fermenting. I came downstairs to find a puddle of foam having made it's way across the table that my fermenting tub sits on towards the edge and then the floor. Fortunately, I managed to mop it up and put some more towels in it's way to catch whatever came out over the next couple of days. Note to self -put towels down with every brew!

We went away for 4 nights over the weekend sampling lots of ales and music at the Summer Sundae festival in Leicester. I've just measured the gravity, after 8 days it's down to 1.016.
