Licorice Stout Moves to the Secondary

Licorice stout moves to the secondaryI moved my latest brew, into the secondary fermenter today. Nothing fancy here, I just siphoned it into my second bucket. I took a quick gravity reading, and it was a little higher than I expected. Actually, this beer started out a bit higher than I expected. The gravity now is 1.023, as you can see from the picture. Hopefully this attenuates a bit more in the secondary.

I’m relieved to note that the anise flavor has mellowed out quite a bit at this point. Initially I was worried that I used too much. I think this is going to be a tasty beer.
