Checked the FG of my accidental hi-grav APA and found it to be done enough to keg. Started 1.074 and sits now at 1.014. Love fresh yeast from brewpubs. Kegging it this evening.

Does anyone here keg early and use a ball lock fitting with a 0-30 psi gauge to monitor natural carb progress?

Never done exactly as you describe, but if you are looking for a fun project do a search on here for “spunding valve”. Takes the ‘monitoring’ part out of your idea. You can also use it to pressurize ferment the entire process, replicates the big breweries head pressure on large fermenting vessels, allowing warmer ferments with less off flavors.

This was yesterday, but brewed a PM Octoberfest ale that I came up with on my own. Very exciting for me! A buddy brewed Cheese's Vanilla Caramel Cream Ale. A great evening!

I went to the fridge,stared longingly at the bottles I put in there a couple days ago & grabbed the last bottle of Rivertown wit ale. Still gotta get up the scratch to replace a couple burners on the stove so I can brew some ales again. Jonesin ain't fun.

I'm cold crashing my starter now. Gonna do a step up to 1L, then step up again to 2L for a cascade/citra Pale Ale I'm doing this weekend. I also checked my Hefeweizen and gravity is almost where I want it, probably 3 or 4 more days to keg. And lastly, re-cleaned one of my primary fermenters so I'm ready for next brew day. Now to boil some starter wort.

Went to homebrew club meeting. The brewer from the Frankenmuth Brewery was there and discussed each of their brews as we tasted. Great night. Those meetings are a great way to learn.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

Switched the blow off tube for an airlock. One day closer to being able to taste!

I dry-hopped my chinook/centennial IPA. I also decided that I need to mash at a higher temperature when I use US-05. It fermented down to 1.006.

Made a starter for my all Galaxie IPA I'm brewing tomorrow! Never used Galaxie or even tasted them for that matter. At least not that I know of.
