Update - Racked the beer about 20 minutes ago. Terminal gravity hit 1.011 for an abv of 3.0% on the dot.

Great nutty, malty - mostly clear. :)

Might rack it over tomorrow after a night near freezing and then carbonate. Service in 34 hours.

I'll have 8 days to get my Irish stout ready.  Brewing it tomorrow.

Let us know how it tastes Drew.

8 days? You piker! :)

I was really impressed with the taste of it last night.

Yeah, it should be easy :)  But if I don't brew it today I won't have a chance until Wednesday . . . 3 days is cutting it sort of close.  Or I guess I could brew it any night I didn't want to sleep. ;D

Holy crud. 8 days?  And I thought I was rushing my first batch of the season by having the 1st pint a mere 15 days after brewing.

I made an ordinary bitter that was done fermenting within 4 days then bottled.  IIRC within a week, or so, after bottling it was ready to drink.

Last year for Oktoberfest I brewed a hefeweizen that went from grain to urine in 9 days.  The keg only lasted 2 hours
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Great timing.  I need to have some beer ready for a party in a week.  Some good ideas in this thread.

Fastest was a IIPA made ready to drink in 14 days.  The wort was poured over a fresh yeast cake.  Turned out to be the best IIPA I've ever made.  8.75% ABV made with 4lbs of honey and a 80 min hop stand.  The 80 min hop stand is something to explore and is so rewarding. OMG for 80 hop stand.   
If you don't get in over your head, how are you ever going to know how tall you are.

I pitched the yeast in the stout Friday night.  By Sunday night it looked like it was done, and it was barely bubbling this morning.  I'll check the gravity and taste it tonight.  OG was 1.043, I used 1.5 packs of S-04 per carboy.

IIRC
I've seen this on here a lot and I'm just not hip to all the lingo you kids use these days.  What's IIRC mean?
I know OMG, BRB and RDWHAHB.  I think I know what STFU means (soft thermal flannel underwear?).  After that I'm lost.
