Very nice. I'll hit 2 weeks in bottles on Monday. Trying very hard not to try one out now. We've had some crazy weather here lately, but it seems like we're hitting a warm spell. Can't wait to try one of these out in warm weather.

What is a good amount of time for a normal Hef to ferment? I have one that is at 10 days now but already tastes awesome.

10 days to 2 weeks... 2 weeks @ 63 degrees ambient on mine was perfect, ready to drink after 2 or 3 days in the keg.

Also i should note, me and a buddy tasted it right out of the fermentor as we were kegging, liked it so much we poured ourselves a glass each, let them sit in the freezer for a few to cool down, then drank them right there, tasted great!!

Bottling this recipe tonight after a 10 day fermentation. Looks like I should be able to crack open my first bottle in about a week. More importantly, this should the last batch I "have" to bottle. As I sat last night at the sink, rinsing and rinsing and rinsing bottles, I thought to myself how awesome it will be to just sit back with a draft pour and watch it rack into my keg.

Yeah i went through the same thing and much prefer the keg. One thinf i like is that you can control the carbonation level on a keg, if its a little low, just up the psi and youre good. Also something very nice about going over to my frig and pouring a nice frothy glass off the tap!!

Oh wow. Couldn't help myself, so I popped a bottle after 10 days. Since I did 10 days in carboy, 10 in bottles, this is a beer I didn't even make 3 weeks ago. Boy is this a nice one already. Very smooth, tasty wheaty flavor with subtle banana tones in the background. Gonna have to try and hid these away for at least another week or two for my own safety!

This is my problem. My Cream Ale was so good, I only have a couple bottles left. I should hide them lol. They've been in bottles for a month now and it just keeps getting better each one I crack open.
