Not to be a pessimist, but as wort warms up CO2 comes out of solution so that may be what you're seeing. Wait a week or so and take a gravity reading to be sure.

I actually thought about that and swirled the sample pretty good to release gas and then let it sit out for a few hours to make sure it was flat. Didn't change the reading. The sample definitely tasted way better than it did at 1.024.

Careful doing that. You don't want to oxygenate the beer. Any time you open the lid on anything overly hoppy you want to purge with CO2. Not really an issue if the beer's actively fermenting though - it's if it's done.

What's the gravity at now?

I think you misunderstood my post. I pulled a sample into my hydrometer tube from the spigot on the Spiedel fermenter. I swirled that to release any gas and took a reading. 1.009.

Ah! That's fine then. Wink Sorry, read too fast and thought you swirled the whole fermenter.

1.009 is great! Wow - it's dropped a long way!

Just brewed this one last night. And was concerned with a potential cleanup chore. While more work to cleanup than is typical, it was not that bad, but does take longer - just work slightly smarter. I'm on my second clean cycle this morning with Easy Clean (A cheaper PBW alternate). Still some oil residue coming through, but significantly less than round one. I'll do a third and a final rinse. So all in all, it takes a little more time to clean, but let the system do it for you. Cleanup concern should not be a deal breaker if deciding to make this.

Not sure what happened - Brewed this on Sat - very active fermentation, no issues. I am doing the sugar in steps into the fermenter as per the optional instructions. (I have done this in other beers as well previously with no issues) I added 1 LB of sugar tonight (Tuesday) to it - and all of a sudden, after only half of it being poured in slow, the fermenter all of a sudden blew up like a volcano! Foam everywhere - a real mess. (I am using a 14 gal conical).

Not sure of the real reason why, but be warned. Pour sugar / water mix in REAL slow and monitor.

Was the sugar completely dissolved? If not it can offer micronucleation points for CO2 to cling to and come out of solution quickly, causing huge foam.

I am very sure it was dissolved - very hot water, and good stirring for a few minutes. Obviously something 'agitated' the CO2. To your point, could still have been inadequately dissolved sugar I suppose, or the mixture was too warm (I did neglect to check the temp of the solution prior to pouring.) I can't imagine any other variable. Just another learning experience.

Yup - thanks for the hint! Always prudent to add/mix in slowly.
