Best of luck!
Wow...you read my mind..I was about to post that same thing. Two near boil-overs. I had to babysit that kettle like never before.
Slurry is pitched and I am cracking a brew!!!! What an awesome freaking day!!!!
While I was goofing around during the boil, I racked the Gruagach to a keg--that is going to be a killer beer. I can't wait to have that on tap.
Simcoe is my favorite hop, bar none. I love the aroma on those.
The latest Red Eye Rye is racked to secondary after only 5 days in primary--it was pretty cloudy during the whole rack so I assume plenty of yeast is still in suspension. I'll take a hydro reading (and a taste) later.
