Winters Cask Ale - Kegging (shudder)

Keeping in mind that my brewing partner and I haven't had too much luck with kegging, I think I know the reason why. We haven't been priming the beer when we keg it. So yesterday, at the College Street Pilot Brewery, I kegged the Winters Cask Ale and primed it.

The original gravity was 1043. The final gravity was 1009. That makes the beer 3.5% alcohol by weight, and 4.44% by volume.

I will let the keg sit at room temp (~68° F) for a week, and then move it into the cooler.

The beer tasted pretty clean. There was a hint of vanilla in the finish that I really liked. I might have to try this with procedure with my Holiday Beer.
