Just an early morning update on the home brew excitement.
The balloons filled with gas from the fermentation about 1 hour after they were capped on the bottles on Saturday. Since then, they have remained filled. I know that some of the gas is leaking through the pin pricks in the balloons, but those holes are so very small that I can't find them...oh well....details, details... ;)
In a close look at the bottles, you can really see that the fermentation is still in process, as tiny bubbles are in a constant race to the surface.
Homebrew, here we come!
