The beer had fermented out nicely by Tuesday and so I siphoned it to another carboy. When the yeast is that fast-acting, I figure the beer shouldn't sit on all that sludgy stuff. It looked and smelled good, very bright and clean. Amber is a stretch, perhaps dark honey would better describe the color. I think we'll be kegging the whole batch up soon and hauling it down to Andrei's killer bash.
