I did this kit last winter, brewed 12/1/11, and I thought I had a disaster on my hands. Wasn't able to keep the temperature very close to what the recipe called for during the soak, but kept going. Followed the recipe as close as I could, but it was one of my first 2-3 kits ever. During the fermentation, I was gone about a week and during that time, my power went out and the house temp dropped to @ 39F. The brew was at that temp for at least 3+ days during the fermentation. So between my screw-ups during the brew and the power-out during the ferment, I figured fermentation would end up incomplete and it would end up being dumped out! Glad I didn't!! I let it warm back up and didn't see any activity in the airlock. OG 1.052 FG 1.016 It still turned out great!! Force carbonated and 3 weeks of aging later, it went on the tap. Very popular brew!! Nice head and aroma...., Great flavor with a nice smooth finish..., despite my screw-ups! Will order again, and again.
