5/17/2015: Very slow start to ferment.  They smack pack was manufactured ~18 months ago and was given more than a day to halfheartedly inflate the bag.  Currently sitting at an indicated 66F.  Krausen started to form at 30 hours.

5/18/15: Still slow, but with a well established krausen.  Indicated 66F in a 65F room.

6/2/15 - Kegged.

 

Initial tastings reveal a sulfur aroma.  Bad yeast?
