Started my first stout on 3/20. It is this kit from Jasper’s. https://www.boomchugalug.com/product/i- … ast-stout/
Everything has been going well. OG was 1.087. However, fermentation seemed very short compared to the DIPAs I usually do. Heavy fermentation started quickly but was only visible for about 4 days. Since then airlock bubbles have been about 20 to 30 seconds apart.
Tonight I pulled a sample, it came in at 1.028. Instructions state 1.018 - 1.022. Not much seems to be happening, do you think this batch is ready to rack to secondary? Ready to get the beer away from the thick layer of cocoa fat.
I did taste the sample, it was excellent so far. Heavy coffee, chocolate, and dark malt flavor. Very excited. This will also be my first batch to be kegged. :cheers:
