I'm a bit exhausted from the busy brew day today. I managed to both bottle the Late Winter Warmer and also brew the Slash/Colorado Ale. I boiled off more than I had expected, and neglected to sparge as much as normal, so I ended up hitting the gravity target but undershooting the volume target. In other words, less beer, but instead of being concentrated it worked out as about the strength I was aiming for.

OG was about 1.056 or 1.057 (didn't take an accurate temperature measurement to calibrate, so I'm guessing). This yeast is a notorious non-finisher, so I'll have to keep an eye on it. Not sure what I'll do if it looks wimpy, though.

I'll post another update when it's getting closer to bottling time, or if I decide to add fruit to the secondary.
