2nd Stage for the APA

Siphoned the APA out of primary into 2nd stage Better Bottle on Monday. It is a nice rich brown color, 25 SRM. There was good fermentation after the re-pitch though not nearly as vigorous as I would have preferred with a propagated liquid yeast. The taste is good, though I worry about off dialectal flavors developing later on due to either too soft water or overheating the grains in the steeping stage.
Once the weather warms up a bit I plan on brewing a Porter kit that I got from Northern Brewers.
