how far along is it?
I brewed this on Monday 09/01, so it's' still pretty early. The airlock started to bubble yesterday around 2pm and it's still going strong this morning. I'll be racking it to the secondary this coming Monday or Tuesday.
As far as the imperial part of the name, I will have to look into the definition a little more. I had figured this being a 5 gallon 8.2% batch, but it turned out to be 5.5 gallons @ 7.4%. The 60 oz of pumpkin created a ton of trub.
