I helped Tom brew this at the club group brew on Aug 22. I posted pictures on Picassa.

Tom gave me the yeast at the group brew, so I popped it when I got home and pitched it the evening of Aug 23. Before pitching, I racked to another fermenter, which left a lot of trub behind.
Sep 1: The original instructions said to primary for 10 days. I'm surprised, there is still bubbling in the airlock on day 9. I think I'll wait until the weekend to rack to secondary.
Sep 12: Racked to secondary. FG is 1.016.
Sep 20: On tap.
