Transferred to secondary today. Took a reading and it came in at 1.01. So, that's about 5.75%. Took a taste too and it's delicious.

Edit: Oh, and I saved some trub to make beer bread at a later day. Hungry

FG ended up being 1.009. So, this one comes in right around 5.9%. Bottled a couple weeks ago and had a sample tonight. I'm quite pleased with it.
Washed the yeast from the Belgian Pale Ale and now feeding it into a beer bread starter.

I should have the first batch of beer bread ready at the herf.
Transferred my first DIPA to secondary today. Doing a 1 gallon test batch. Thinking I might cold crash, filter, and then freeze distill for shits and giggles. Maybe I just won't screw with it and see how it turns out.

Coffee-because it’s cheaper than anger management.

Scottish Ale yeast has been having yeast sects for the last few days. Time for another brew day! Going for a Vanilla Bourbon Oak Porter. Gonna make this a yearly thing for sure. Last year's cane out tasty. Gonna change a couple things for this batch.
My current situation.

And I picked these up a couple days ago.
Those kegs are sexy. Mine look like they rolled down a mountain.

Do you have the kegerator ready to go?

Nope. But I will either get one or transform the outside fridge.
Transfered this years Vanilla Bourbon Oak Porter. Used a whole Madagascar Vanilla bean with Old Rip Van Winkle. OG was 1.073 and its steady at 1.022 when I transferred. Added the oak chips and vanilla bean thats been soaking in the bourbon for 4 days into the secondary. Gonna let it rest for 2 weeks until I bottle. Then, let the bottles rest for a year.

Belgian Dubbel brewed last night.

It's bubbling pretty good now. OG is 1.066.
Brew stopped at 1.011 which isn't bad. Tried to cold crash in the freezer. I now have a 5 gallon beersicle. LOL
I'm pretty sure it'll still turn out good.
