I did not get an OG measurement. I didn't know how important making an OG and FG measurement were until reading through this board. That was after my 3rd batch though! The ferment wasn't what I would call violent, but it was defiantly going good and strong for several days. The yeast and other particles were swirling very rapidly and there was a good thick (maybe 1.5") krausen as well.

TwoHeadsBrewing thanks for the offer. I haven't been to Chico since I was very young, but if I ever make a trip I will dig up this post and send you a PM.

I have had my Russian IP Stout in the fermenter for 9 days. Took my first reading and it too is at 1.032. The sample tasted very good. I will leave it for another week, test it again. If I see no drop, I will maybe leave for a third week, then bottle. I'm not worried about a FG that high.

So after another week in primary, it stayed at 1.032. Again, the sample tasted GREAT..i mean GREAT.
Now it is in the bottles. I'm excited.
