The Christmas Ale has had eight days in the primary, so we racked it to a couple of secondaries.  Gravities on the primary fermenters were 1.012 and 1.013, so quite a good drop from the 1.068 original gravity.  Looks like we won’t have any trouble hitting 7.5% alcohol by volume.  The cinnamon and ginger flavours are there, but pretty subtle, which isn’t a bad thing.

The Boathouse Best Bitter was tapped on Friday, and the corny keg was quite lively, so the first few pints through the handpump were primarily foam.   Even on Saturday night the  condition was higher than it should be.
