Krausen is your friend

If you are a brewer, then krausen is your friend. I keep my brewing simple, without quantitative specific gravity measurements to inform me whether the beer has completed its fermentation or how much alcohol it contains. Instead, I count bubbles and watch krausen. After a week in the primary carboy, my active krausen is telling me that it's not yet time to rack to the secondary. This simplicity is relaxing.
