Awesome beer! First taste today, carbed up quick since it is only 1 week in the bottle. Crystal clear. Will be on regular rotation. Thanks BM!

Just bottled it after 2 months of waiting.

After a month in Primary I transferred it to a secondary for it to clear more and took an OG reading of 1.008 and it tasted a bit sweeter than I wanted it to be. I wanted it to finish at or below 1.005.

Popped it into secondary on top of crushed beano (against all the advice on here because I honestly wanted this to finish as dry as possible and didn't care about residual sugars.)

After waiting 5 weeks it is crystal clear and it finished right at 1.000 with just a tiny hint of sweetness and a light peppery/clove smell that I didn't expect or want. But after drinking the hydro the clove/pepper taste is phenomenal, even though not for style.

1.046 > 1.000

PS. I did a single addition of Spalt as a FWH at 15IBU.

Not my first post by a longshot, but I'll take the kudos.

Should be fine. a 1040 start is in good range for this beer. The lower amount of dry yeast to start with will take a little time and the slight strain on the yeast may impart some pleasant esters.

Should be just fine.
