    week, so I have a lot of spare time. After reading all these posts on this site and others, I
    thought to...

    I'm making my annual winter warmer now...I'm adding 8 to 12oz to the keg and then immediately
    putting in the fridge to avoid further fermentation.My uncle taps and boils down his own maple

    Northern Brewer has a winter ale kit called Festivus Miracle. Be sure to wash your hands before
    you brew it.It must be brand new. I've never seen that before

    I was unaware about 565. Still, I've never cultivated from a bottle, and figured this was a
    good experiment

    congrats! 1.006 is on the higher end for 3711. it might be done, or it might chew through a few
    more points. i'd give it a little more time to be sure that it's completely finished
    fermenting.Yeah, ev...
