I transferred this one to secondary Monday night with a little bit of gelatin added, although I don't think the gelatin is necessary. It looked and tasted great. The big surprise was my gravity reading was at 1.005! I used Wyeast 1056 but did not expect it to ferment that much! I know my temperature dropped some during the mash so that may account for the lower final gravity.
The low final gravity plus a slightly higher OG (boiled off a little too much) puts mine at about 5.6% ABV which was a little higher than anticipated but definitely not something I'm worried about. I'm getting impatient and may keg this batch tomorrow... I can't wait to try a glass!
I just noticed that the original post said the final gravity was 1.005... I am reassured though. Tomorrow night, the beer will be kegged...
