I declare my Progressive Pale Ale fit for consumption! Brewed on Election Day, 2008.
I tried something a little different this time and let it "secondary ferment" in the keg for over 2 weeks. All told, it spent about 10 days in primary fermentation, over 2 weeks in secondary and a little over a week in the fridge, carbonating. A total of about 5 weeks, which is longer than I have been able to let other brews sit for!
It has a nice head on it, but is a bit on the dark side and also a little cloudy. I think the creamy head and cloudiness is due to the use of flaked oats. While the flaked oats give a nice smooth mouthfeel - I think I am going to use the oats on future Stouts/Porters and maybe some brown ales and leave it out of these others.
I have had a few pints of it already, and it is damn good. Another success! I fear it wont last too long, though, so come and get it while you can.
