Nice! How did it go?

How are you fermenting? I ended up buying another chest freezer to use just for fermenting.

The day went very well. My OG was a little high, but I can live with that. The ferment, however, is not going at all. I used two Wyeast 1275 - Thames Valley Ale packs, actually made a starter. Pitched it Monday morning and I haven't seen any activity at all. I'm going to take a hydro sample tomorrow morning and if I don't see any movement I'm going to thrown in two US-04 packs.

I've got this fermentor in a chest freezer with a temp controller. I started the ferment out at 64 degrees and I'm up to 66 right now. I may let this rise to 70 just to see if I can "wake up" those yeast.
