Just checked my FG on this and it was 1.027 which is a touch higher than the recipe said (1.024). I really liked the sample, as did my GF which is amazing since she "hates stouts"! It's a touch sweet but I think once carbonated it'll balance well.

Bottling later tonight.

Just tasted a bottle after 8 days. More time will be great on this beer I think. The sweetness I was concerned has certainly mellowed some. My bottle was also at room temp. More time to carb up (carbonation was a bit low) and cooled in the fridge and I think i'll have a winner.

Glad to hear the brew is coming along. Mine has been bottled for almost 3 weeks now and it beautiful. I also had the higher fg problem. The abv on mine is low as hell. But a very nice clean stout. Cheer 17.

Here's my stout. This was a aggressive pour but head stays around and has very nice lacing.
