My airlock activity has basically ceased at this point (i know this doesn't necessarily mean anything) so it's just a waiting game. I'm particularly excited for this brew because it is a new brew with new ingredients and I haven't done a "dark beer" yet. I also put a lot of work into this one so I want it to be good (I spent probably 2 weeks trying to decide on a stout recipe that I wanted to do).

Cheers
I brewed mine Saturday and had crazy airlock activity. BUT, it ceased 48 hours ago. The final gravity never changed. I had to bottle it today. It really needed to be put in the secondary but I'm having surgery Tuesday and won't be able to bottle it after my surgery. It tasted amazing. Hope that yours comes out terrific. Def keep me up to date. Here's a pic of me racking it and the 48 bottles I got out of it.

Cheers.

Here's my stout. This was a aggressive pour but head stays around and has very nice lacing.
