Taste NotesUsed a 1 liter starter prepared previous night. Pitched at about 78 F. Fermenting began in about 4 hours. Placed fermenter in cooler with water and a wet towel with fan blowing. Temp seems to be right around 64 F. Next day found valve clogged and lid of fermenter covered with trub/kraeusen. Removed (Big blowoff) and cleared valve and placed hose to bucket with water. Fermentation continued strong through Thursday when it began slowing. Temp of water stayed around 65 thanks to cooler weather and water/towel arrangement.
Sunday April 8. Fermentation has slowed and I need a bucket so I am racking to the empty keg to finish there. Will add CO2 only for removing oxygen, then will vent daily. Lots of sediment but I took sample right from top where there was a bit of a thin yeast foam.
Had about 2 quarts extra so bottled it and drank one during brewing. Good and strong.
FG reading is about 1.012 and color is deep amber. Smells nice and tastes very nutty--not sure if that is the Perle hops. Low bitterness. Not much hop flavor. Pretty balanced I would say. I think I am 1 oz short of the 4 ounces of hops that Jamil's recipe called for.
Washed 2112 yeast and kept 2 bottles.
Late May and drinking this regularly. Nice smooth malty beer. Brown in color. Not much hop flavor, considering 3 oz.
