Taste Notes

Tasted as it went to Secondary, background it good, but there is some astringency I believe due to the hops left in the primary using the boiling some of the cube reserve with fresh hops technique. Added Gelatin followed and see if that plus aging will cleans up the Astrengency. Not yet rated.

Notes

Not a perfectly attended Mash, but kept in zone. Not Gold Star. Turned out a bit darker than expected. Saflale 23 did a nice job of floculating.
