First running are down from 2 quarts to under 1. Just starting main boil.

All the windows in the house are fogged and it smells great!

(edit: meant to say gallons not quarts)

Brewed mine on 10/17 and racked it tonight to secondary. My reading was 1.020 and the sample tasted GREAT, could not believe how the color has changed. Looks like my britt is doing a good job.

I just pulled my first sample of this tonight, 4 months since brewing.

The color is spot on, rich dark mahogany. The aroma is oak, toffee, and whiskey. The flavor is raisins, dark plums, and sweet toffee with just a touch of brett character.

I never got any kind of pellicle, and I am detecting very little brett presence, but man this beer is good. I cant wait to have it in November when it's got a little age on it, and then throw half the bottles in the closet for another year!!
