Cool...what's your fermentation schedule? How many weeks in basement before you'll bottle?

Its been 3 weeks in basement ill probly bottle it whenever I get a chance. Considered moving it upstairs for a few days (warmer) just to give the yeasties a chance to clean up, but judging by the taste I dont think its really necessary.

It'll take a while at 55F, but it will finish up. I would recommend moving it upstairs or not depending upon your available time to bottle. Regardless, a week or so as cold as you can get it prior to bottling would be good, to get as much of the yeast to settle as possible.
