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.
