I brewed this 12 days ago and everything seems to be going well except for one thing. It is still fermenting at a decent rate. The airlock is still bubbling about every 6 seconds. Any words of wisdom?

Well this went over crazy well at our annual Halloween party. Pretty much emptied 2 kegs of it in one weekend. Everyone loved it. Next year I may need to bump it up to 15 gallons.

Thanks. Brewed 11 gallons on 10/11. Had a strong bubble with-in 6 hours in the fermenter and transfered last night to Keg's with an FG of 1.02. This should be a delicious beer for my Novemberfest! Thanks

Unfortunately it didn't. Ran out of time before my party. I've added notes to give it a full 3 weeks fermentation before I cold crash. Taste and color were right on par, just a little low on the alcohol side (fine when you're guests are devouring 25 gallons in a night!)

Last pour at the bottom of the keg
