Taste Notes

12/22/16 1.038 Observed Good aroma, fantastic taste. Still sweet and the carmel will 12/4/16 1.077 - .5 gallons more in fermentor. Fine since it's going to be a lesser apv than usual for the new years eve party. Flavor is pretty out of this world. Bitterness still... not where it needs to be. People will like it though. 2oz tea in whirlpool / steep (7min @160f - 170f) Wort - 4/6/2014 1.083 Nose: Nice Hop aromas. Lemony, earl grey notes. Citsusy. Start: sweet, bitter, medium body, Mids: Bitter, heavy body. Finish: dry/bitter finish from hops and earl grey. Bitter Lemon Secondary - 4/12/2014 Two Drops Bergomont Oil nice hoppt aroma nose: hint og earl grey (oil) Start: Sweet, teay, and bitterness comes in strong. Mids: Bitter Finish: Bitter comes off and it starts to come through. Dry Hop (4 Days) - 4/29/2014 Two Drops Bergomont Oil

Notes

2oz Cascade or Centennial 3.6 ounces Earl Grey 5 min after boil steep. 7/16/2015: Brew day - 1.9 ounces earl grey. I think this was better. 7/28/2015: Racked into secondary and dry hopped. 2 drips bergamont. 1.038 unconverted. 1.010 Nose is incredible. Hop cooling steep contributes to this. A good amount of desired bitterness is there. Very good. 8/4/2015: Kegging. Didn't add drops, didn't feel like it needed it with all the current aromas. Nose: Sweet, grassy, cedar, sharp, pungent. MMMMMM Start is citrusy, zingy, Mids are sweet with a fruity undertone, and finish is sweet w/ bitterness at the same time. Really really good. Best yet.
