Hydrometer sample tastes great, no acytaldeyde or sulfur. But carbonated so its still working. How crazy, huh? I'll take a read in another 7 days and start my decent to lagering temp. Going to drop 3 a day to 36 then rack to kegs for lagering

Good pitching rate and temperature control are the keys and it sounds like you hit the mark, so in a few sort weeks, enjoy!

klickitat jim:
Sweet, thanks

I pitched yeast on the a month ago. They have been in the kegs a week.  I took a sneak preview and they are amazing.  Simple, subtle, tasty, addictive, and clean. The wife took a taste and said best larger she ever had. She normally tells me the truth so I think I hit a homer. Thanks for the help!

Now to let them age a month and enjoy on a week of vacation.
