Just checked an SG after 2 weeks 1.021 OG was dead on my target of 1.057. This is he first batch I've kept down around 55 so around 59-60 internal and it's going slow but smells very citrusy and tastes amazing for sure best batch yet. Is it normal to take this long to get down to FG with the temps that low? I used WLP001 FYI.

I followed Nail's recipe to the T and ended up with a fantastic beer that's just now reaching it's prime (1 month after bottling). It's a little harsh after two weeks in the bottle but give it a few extra weeks after it carbs and it will really shine. Terrific hop aroma and flavor (love Amarillo!) and head retention is great. I think I actually prefer this to real Gumballhead (but the similarity is REALLY close). I would definitely brew this again, but maybe as a summer beer.
