Taste Notes

Smooth sweet beer on first tasting after initial brewing. Definitely taste the Alpen. Sort of sweet slightly sour milk. Opened a 330ml bottle on 03-12-2017 exactly 2 weeks after bottling. A strange taste not unpleasant or great. Bitter finish and not the disaster I feared it might have been. But not a hit either.

Notes

I treated water 15ml of AMS (CRS blended Acids). Also added 8 grams of both Calcium Carbonate and Brewers gypsum salts. OG surprised me at 1060. FG was 1028 so ABV was 4.2%.
