I don't keg...yet. I keep buying supplies (100 lbs of DME recently) storage containers, fermenters....it's like an addiction. And it's ending up all over my basement and my SWMBO get's a little frustrated. So I hand her a beer and she calms down for a bit

So, I'll be bottling this one. But, It'll be ready in time for a beach trip we have planned at the end of July.

I came in a little lower than expected on my OG at 1.076. I'll be curious to see what the FG measure comes to. It's already bubblin' away thanks to that starter though so I have high hopes.

Thanks again for sharing this!

So when you head to bottle stage do you have to prime or Is their enough sugar left to carb on its own?

You have to prime to get the carbonation needed. Not enough sugar left if its sat in primary/secondary long enough.

My batch is still actively fermenting..going strong now for 10 days!

Bottled this last night. Used 2 oz dextrose and 3 oz brown sugar because it was all that was in hand. I had a fg of 1.017. tasted like pineapple, cinnamon and rum. Ill have to save some of these for the fall time.

DAMMMMMMIT!!!! I'm still sittin' here waitin' for this bloomin' thing. I have 12 days before I rack onto the flippin' oak chips......argh. Speakin' of which, 24 hours in advance, I may toss the vanilla bean into the oak/rum solution then toss into the carboy/bucket. Not sure yet. The stuff looks better in the back yard in that Duvel glass too. I ended up buying the 4pack gift pack 2 x just to get that glass after I broke it by accident

Racked to secondary yesterday, so now to wait another week or so to bottle and condition.
As i said the OG was 1.091, final gravity came in at 1.010 --10.8% abv before the rum adds a bit to it. So yea hopefully this will be tasty...going to be an ass kicker as is
