Into the fermenter

And we're off

2018-3-1 kegging. FG was way higher than expected at 1.017. Could be the temp in the fermentation room stayed pretty cool for the whole 2 weeks. Still ended up at 5.6% and it doesn't taste too sweet so that's good.

2018-3-4 Carbonated. Tasting nice - about what I would expect from an English IPA. Pronounced nutty malts from the Maris Otter and dark crystal, and plenty of hop character from the Northern Brewer and Loral. This is a go-to I could see becoming a regular in the keezer!

2018-4-18 update. Tasting great, still lots of hop presence and finishes clean
