Default long primary

It has been a long year. Last June I bought a honey ale kit, but then life got in the way. Then a few months back I brewed it, but then once more life got in the way. I plan on racking to a keg this weekend. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.

Primary for a year??

Even I would have found time to rack to secondary!

He bought it a year ago, but brewed it a couple of months ago. So I would say no worries.

Ah yes, my bad. I misread the OP's post.

I brewed an American Stout one time that sat on the yeast for about 4-5 months I think. Scored a 43.5 at a big local competition.

I have a feeling that certain beer styles, roasty, or maybe hoppy or both, tend to cover up a low amount of off-flavors from extended primary.

I'm curious to see how this one turns out.
