This is what beer is supposed to do, if you've done things right thus far. The yeast is eating the sugars from the several pounds of malt I used and is making beer. It's "boiling" like mad right now, and foam has worked its way down the blow-off tube and has even tunred the water in the pitcher I'm using for blow-off as dark black as the beer itself. This is some evil stuff...

So far, so good. No sign of infection, and obviously a very viable, robust yeast strain.

This looks great! I'm curious how you derived the recipe?

Some advice from brewers on beeradvocate.com and the Papazian book, which gives some approximations of ingredients needed for certain types of beer.
