I'm planning on really tapping my keg of this on the 9th. I've been drawing like 1 oz samples every so often since moving from the lager fridge to the kegerator and its almost where I want it to be for clarity. It should be done within the next 2 weeks. I'll post pictures too.

Its pretty... even with the condensation on the glass! And props to Boon Island Ales in Wells, Maine! Love the glass! Check them out if you're in the northeast... it very well done.

Have you pulled a pint yet? Any pics?

I'm bummed, the keg is getting close to being gone. I need to make this again soon. I have an Oktoberfest lagering now so it will have to wait for the temp controlled fermentation space to be free before I make it again.

I too am at the end of my Keg. What a great beer. I can't say enough good things about it. I'll be keeping this one on tap as much as possible in the future.

I brewed this one yesterday. I FWH this one, and this morning, it's bubbling away. I was surprised how light it was. This was the first beer I've brewed with corn and rice in it. I'll post how it turns out.

I tried my first sample yesterday and it was delicious! A touch too much corn flavor and bitterness, but that will subside in the cold conditioning. Wound up with an OG of 1.052. Gravity reading yesterday was 1.010, which is on par with the liquid white labs american lager yeast I used. Think I'll do a d-rest for a few more days then keg.
