Well, over the weekend, I bottled my Phat Tire. I went to rack the Kolsch to secondary, but it wasn't ready. I had a thick milky bubble layer on top (Krausen, me thinks). It had been in the primary for a week, with strong activity in the airlock for the first 48hrs or so. I took a gravity reading, and it was 1.024 (OG was 1.050). So, I stirred the heck out of the yeast with my sanitized racking cane and resealed it. Boom, two hours later it rose back to 62F and was bubbling away again. I have let it go since Saturday, with a twice a day rousing of the bucket to try and keep it going. I am hoping that tonight it will be ready for secondary racking.
On a side note, the Phat Tyre was pretty good at bottling time, and in the bottles its my clearest beer yet. And Saturday night, I tried my WInter Warmer for the first time....9.0% baby! Wow, it came out better than expected...a little spicy (from the hops me thinks) with a definate warming note. It makes an excellent "nite-cap" beer or after dinner beer.
