Novacaine question

Recommended Posts

Hey all. So I'm 2 weeks into fermintation of Novacaine.  Last week when I put the hops in, I got a reaction that has not subsided. Instead of being the usual bubbles it almost looks like trub and it hasn't gone down in a week.  

Is this normal?  Thanks for the help

Haha yes I did sanatize. And only look to make sure temp is ok and krausen is ok. This one I gave a week before asking just because it looked so much different then the normal bubbles for a day or two.  Thanks.

When I brewed my first batch of Novacaine last May, I noticed big globs krausen that didn't sink into the wort for nearly three weeks. I was informed this sometimes happens with US-05 yeast. I let it brew in the LBK four weeks, cold crashed for five days then bottled. I taste-tested one back in November and it was GOOD. I'll be starting my second batch of Novacaine this week to give as Christmas presents later this year... the recipe is that good!
