Has anyone ever made the Belgian Strong Golden Ale extract kit from Northern Brewer? I just got mine into the primary this past weekend (3/10). I did a 2L starter on the Wyeast 1388 the night before. I had really strong fermentation yesterday (needed the blow-off hose right away) which has slowed some today but still bubbling ever 3-4 seconds. Has a really pleasant yeasty-bananay smell to it. I am looking forward to this one (which sounds like will take several months!)
I was wondering how long did you let it sit in the primary? What was your FG? How about the secondary? Did you have to re-pitch yeast at bottling time? How was the carbonation? What did you use to prime?
Any advice/tips would be welcome. This is only my 4th batch of beer.
