Notes

Did not get good boil. May want to try with good 60-90 min boil and see if this improves. Will be a real winner of so as it is good now. Lager-ed 10 bottles, 2 with chilly peppers. Opened one and it was flat so took all out of fridge, shook and left in 70deg area. Check these for taste and other differences. Color: more yellow than whitish (maybe boil?) cloudy as expected Smell: Initially REINGOLD! Later more "Belgian" like Taste: Nice tingle, vanilla, orange , creamy with classic Belgian like finish (Duval, Trimins) Added 1/2 bean maybe try full bean next time. Continue to extract the inner part of the bean to boil at 5 min mark. Try all grain next?
