Just another update. It stayed in secondary 3 weeks (I was busy) and I bottled on Aug. 31. Next weekend, I'll give it a taste. The Kolsch I brewed before this is delicious!

Just a note. All kinds of life-interruptions happened, and I didn't get to rack to secondary until last night. So, this stayed in primary for 2 weeks and 5 days.
