I just kegged this one and set aside seven bottles for the mini-comp. Gravity sample is 1.009. More impressive is the fact that I gave my wife a sip of the sample and she loved it (usually she says the gravity samples are too bitter) so that's a good sign.

158F, just like in the instructions. Is my batch the anomaly or something?

I also let it sit in primary for 14 days instead of 10 since I didn't have anything to keg it in.

I'm in the same boat, mine is barely carbonated.

Shipping mine out today as well. Haven't tried the bottled beers in a couple weeks but the keg is drinking pretty good, maybe a little bland. We'll see what happens.
