Well, its holding steady at 1.033. Seems high, but I guess that's where its decided to end. I was going to carb the growler, and taste it in a few weeks, but I think I'll bottle into 12oz bottles so I can get about 5 bottles to try as it ages.

The bottles have been moved to chill. I'll share them and the upcoming SoCal Homebrew Fest in Ojai (in two weeks). I'll post the results. I have low expectations.

The most flattering review received was "I guess you *could* finish a pint of this". But no one did.

I would consider actually baking the cake and then mashing that with your grain, that way you gelatinize the starch in the wheat flour so you can get sugar from mashing that as well as the simple sugar in the cake mix.

That's a good idea. Plus, I could eat a slice of cake! Maybe I'll try that. I'll update this thread if I do. Thanks.

Huh? Pretty sure that cake uses baking powder for leavening, not yeast.

Its a reverse rum cake. Instead of putting the liquid booze into the cake, you are putting the solid cake into the beer to be. Brilliant!
