I think it's pretty well done - airlock activity is very slight, and the gravity seems to be stable at 1.020. I had thought it may come down a bit more, but I think that'll do. It's getting to the point that I'm tempted to steal another sample just to get another sip... is that wrong?
So far, so good as far as other beers... we're drinking a porter and a SNPA clone right now, and I bottled my first Belgian Wit over the weekend. Should be bottling a California Common in the next couple weeks or so (another first for me). The only issue is I don't have enough bottles for what I've got in carboys now (and as much as I want to start kegging, I'm just not ready yet - I do have a little chest freezer and a tear in my eye, so we'll see what happens after Christmas time...).
The biggest problem is we have to drink enough homebrew to free up bottles for the next batch - it's an awful situation really, but we're dealing with it as best as can be expected...
Going to share a bunch for SWMBO's Christmas party in a month, so that should help (dangit) ;o)
I'm thinking an awful lot about trying Edwort's Apfelwein next - I read through most of the recipe manifesto today at lunchtime, and now have that funny feeling I get when it's about time to ferment sumptin'... ;o)
