Rackin' time!

Checked the Dunkel yesterday. Gravity is down to 1011, which should be final. Tested for diacetyl and it seemed clean, so I'm turned down the thermostat to 60° and will rack to a keg tonight and drop it another 5°. Now I just need to figure out when to brew the Weizenbock. I'm also contemplating only doing three beers for Oktoberfest (might have to go out and actually BUY some beer then) so I can brew once for my personal consumption. Would like to do a Scottish ale, but since it's a quasi-lager (i.e. lower temp, longer fermentation time) I might do something else that will be ready sooner. Maybe a regular old altbier? But even that needs cold conditioning. Oh well, we'll have to wait and see...
