Well guys, my FG is around 1.026-8ish.

This is after 21 days of primary around 63*.

Taste is green and a touch on the sweet side, but nothing crazy.

Go ahead and keg it?

You guys ever run into issues of suck back through the airlock when you use BetterBottles? I would think the change in temp would suck the sides of the carboy in pretty good?
