    I brewed this in early october, bottled it mid January. Now in late Feb it has aged into an
    AWESOME beer. I used a friends home-roasted Columbian beans and left them in for two days prior

    For sure get a hydrometer. You can't tell if the fermentation is complete without one - and you
    run the risk of exploding bottles if it isn't and you bottle anyway.And - good call on the
