WLP011 Yeast starter made two days prior

1/12/2010 Went well enough for my first time :) Pitched the whole yeast starter, which wasn't advised. Oh well. Smelled great. Gravity at 1.052 (slightly higher than should be)
1/15/2010 Fermentation seems to have stopped
1/16/2010 Yeah, def. stopped.
1/17/2010 Kegged. FG 1.00ish (supposed to be 1.012)
1/18/2010 I don't like it much. Really light, doesn't taste like a porter at name...Brown Ale :)
1/20/2010 Much better. Tastes like a good brown ale, strong alcohol smell, and coffee notes. I actually can't taste the coffee, but Tara's pallet can :)
