Kegging the Centennial Blonde

Yesterday, after two weeks of fermentation and a brix reading of ~5.3/5.4 (translating into a FG of 1.007/1.008), I decided to keg the centennial blonde together with 10g of Cascade and 20g of Centennial for dry hops. I had a small sample from the fermenter and the beer was both tasting and looking good (very clear). Now the keg is standing in the fridge for a week under 0.7 bar pressure, and next weekend it should be ready for tasting.

I also added 40g Amarillo, 40g Cascade, and 20g Chinook to the West Coast IPA, and will let it dry hop for a week before I keg it.
