Chores in the home brewery planned for today: Rack the stout to secondary before a few months of conditioning, bottle wee heavy.

Relieved to find my problem keg holding pressure this AM. Problem was a gasket in the PRV, had popped loose during kegging.

Added oak to the wee heavy I made in Jan. Smells amazing already. Will keg in July, very much looking forward to it.

MY wee heavy, Pirate King, is transferred to secondary for a nice, long nap. Will add oak and dry hop before kegging.
