I'll be testing the gravity on this soon. Do any of you guys put this in a secondary, or just bottle after it's done?

I have, but only to get to the yeast to wash it because I was following up with the same batch and wanted to harvest it. It has cleared fine in primary so if you don't need to I wouldnt waste the time or risk.

I was going to harvest my yeast as well, but figured I could after bottling it. Is there a reason why you transfer it first? I'll be putting this into a bottling bucket, so figured i could seal up my fermenting bucket and then harvest the yeast when i'm done.

It was a couple of gravity points from being done but there was a 1.5 inch layer of yeast that I wanted to get to and I was brewing this batch again the next day. So I moved it to get to the yeast and let it finish in the secondary. In the future that won't happen as I will plan ahead and have yeast available.

I am definitely going to harvest a couple pints of mine. I already have a couple pints of Irish Ale yeast in my fridge. I figured it would be nice to have a cuople of pints of Nottingham in there as well for the future.

I brewed this 3-FEB-13 exactly to spec. Gravity came out to 1.040; spot on!
Lost quite a bit in the boil, somewhere around 1.5 gal so not quite a 5 gal brew, but it is beautiful.
Tested the SG 6-FEB-13 and it is at 1.000. I'd call that done. It tasted great! Nice and light, with just a slight bitterness and citrus flavour from the hops.
I'm going to cold crash for clarity and then bottle sometime this weekend.
Can't wait to try the finished product in about a week!

Wow 3 days. Mine is going on 9 days, still have it in the fermenter, my gravity was 1054 though.

Really...Have you checked what your hydrometer reads in distilled water? Not sure I have ever seen a beer finish this dry with an all malt grain bill

I just did a search on YouTube for washing yeast. It's so easy. Yeast has always been the most expensive item when buying ingredients. This is going to save much $$$$$$ over time & ultimately make a better beer.

I just ordered PacMan special & it took 2 weeks from my LHBS.

I've had very good luck with liquid yeast, a starter, & a stir plate! I made my own stir plate for $5 with instructions I found on HBT. My beer just keeps getting better & better.

Thanks Guys!
