  1. Tomorrow Friday I will start the long expected Obvara-after-a-pit-fire. We discussed Obvara in a thread of Marcia's already, but now I will try to get a pit (and not a raku kiln) as hot as possible to be able to do Obvara. I started the witch's brew 2 days ago and, on the first day, I got a nice fermentation, 2nd day it was just a liquid mass, today I see fermentation again (lather), but the liquid was never warm (except when I started the brew with warm water). Question: shouldn't a fermenting brew be at least luke warm? The fermentation is a chemical reaction isn't it? And that leads to warmth?! I kept to the known recipe: 10 lt luke warm water 1 kg flour 2 packets of yeast (our packets here in Europe are 10 grams per packet - and yours in the State?) 1 tbl spoon of sugar (I took whitte sugar) Any tips and tricks you can give about the pit fire getting hot enough for the Obvara firing are very welcome! Thanks. Will keep you in the loop. Will go to bed now, it's almost 9 p.m. here. See you tomorrow. Evelyne
