Taste Notes

At time of carbonation, SO2 strong in aroma, otherwise pleasant flavor, feels a little thick and bitterness is obvious despite only being 21 IBU. All that said, without the SO2 will be good. Recommend reducing SG next time and switching to 1056 chico

Notes

Previous try at american wheat was "undrinkable" lets try it again, but no, this time, its rye-ee. Sparge - 4.75 gal @ 170°F ----Notes---- Prep - Spilled a couple ounces of primarily wheat malt while gristing. Olive is enjoying it. Mash - Initial temp 154.5°F, stirred to get down to target. At 10m in, temp now 151°F. Stirred at 35m in temp still around 151°F. Primary - Initial temp 64°F for 3 days, then 66° for next 4. Racked to secondary carboy, FG 1.018 but still active fermentation. Taste slightly phenolic although nothing like that first beer, but otherwise pleasant, some SO2 present and yeast present. Hope these characteristics re-absorb in secondary. Secondary - Room temp ~72°F for 7 days, wrapped in a towel. Crash chill after 7 days to 35° for 7 days. FG Kegged
