2016-12-20: Brewed.  Smack pack didn't inflate, though it wasn't old and hadn't been abused.  Pitched with unprepared yeast from a jar, last used for the Grand Cru in May.

Fermentation eventually started, but it was slow.

2016-12-30: Transferred to secondary to make room for the Gout Stout.  Moved the secondary to the beer room where it's a bit warmer (66F).  Some evidence of continued fermentation.
