Brewing went pretty well with the exception that my electronic thermometer crapped out on me so my temps may have been a little off. I know my efficiency was a little lower than expected. Fermenting went well, it got doen to 1.009 as predicted (maybe even 1.008). I filtered it and kegged it and now I am just waiting for something else to kick before I put it on. Hopefully I will be enjoying this one by next weekend. The tastes of it I have had while kegging were pretty good....
