Today I racked the dunkel over to the kegs for lagering. Came in a little high at 1.018 FG but it didn't taste overly sweet---malty yes, cloying no. That's good. I will say the hydrometer samples (two fermenters) didn't last long!!

This Saturday is National Homebrew Day!! Lots of homebrewers will be brewing up a batch of something, think maybe I'll brew up some dry stout, haven't had any of that on tap for a while. Hopefully a Guinness-fanatic coworker/friend of mine can stop by and assist. Here's the recipe:
