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.
