Good question. Between traveling, people in town visiting, etc., I haven't even looked at it in a few weeks. I'll check on it tonight, maybe take a gravity reading. My goal was to forget about it for a few months, in hopes that the longer it sits on the yeast, the better it will get.

This is still sitting in primary, waiting for some bottles to open up.

Plastic bottles? Why not glass?

I'd be careful keeping them for any extended period of time, plastic is permeable to oxygen.

Didn't have enough glass bottles. If the plastic can hold CO2, how is it permeable to O2? I think that argument is pretty ridiculous, especially since this stuff will probably be gone in a few month.

I wouldn't drink it for a few months, honestly, as AW tastes like hoochy garbage (IMO) unless it is aged. just an fyi.

I cracked open one of the two liters last weekend, and it was pretty damn tasty already. My wife and I and another couple friend of ours easily finished the 2 liter. I think ale or lager yeast on this one, plus the brown sugar, made it very interesting.
