Batch 8: Steamboat California Common Beer: Primary Fermentation

The fermenting ramped up within 24 hours of pitching, and there was obvious airlock activity for four full days after that. I racked the beer to the 5-gallon carboy for secondary fermentation after 14 days in the primary and measured the specific gravity at 1.010. The sample from the thief was very smooth, drinkable, and understated. I like the East Kent Goldings. I'm excited to see how this one tastes carbonated. I'm planning to let the beer condition for a week before bottling.
