so probably more amber than red if I were to guess.  as long as it tastes good that's okay but I'll have to change the name ;)

fermentation really took off on this one.  pitched around 4:30 yesterday and as of 6:00AM it was crankin' pretty hard.  probably one of my shorter dry yeast lag times.

I have seen but not used.  I remember for a while it was all the rage but I don't hear much about it now.

6 oz of Columbus went into the primary yesterday. Fermentation is slowing down so hopefully I can scrub o2 while keeping lots of hop aroma. I started spunding for real as well. Pressure is at about 20 psi now. Not sure if it's got much more to give but we'll see tonight I guess when I get home.

I think I timed that dry hop pretty well. I didn't have to vent much and right now the primary is at 30 psi which should be about right for carbonation at 70f. I'm guessing fermentation is pretty close to done if not done already.

possibly.  sometimes I wonder if the beer carbs up beyond the level of equilibrium and then outgases towards the end so fermentation is actually done but PSIs keep creeping up.

still very slowly picking up a PSI or so per day.  I pulled a hydro sample.  1.010 right now but still kind of looks active given how cloudy it is.

What do you ferment in? Any issues pressure transferring from fermenter to serving keg at that pressure? I just started fermenting in a 10g corny but only spund to 10 psi or thereabouts.

I just make sure I have some back pressure in the receiving keg and I do okay.

So def more Amber than red. I'd reduce the midnight wheat next time and it would probably be better color wise. Now that it's chilled it's very enjoyable. Balanced, drinkable, moderate (for me these days anyway) hop aroma and flavor which goes nicely with everything else. Seems like a winner. Probably better in a week or so.
