Taste Notes

A nice balanced beer.

Notes

77.0 C water for mash was not hot enough. The mash temp was around 63.9 C. Added a couple of litres of water at around 88.0 C. Mash temp was 66.7 C After the boil and the wort was at 23.0C, I poured it on the slurry of the Timaroons (which I racked earlier in the day). Quite dry tasting at kegging. Tried some of this the evening of kegging and is quite nice. The objective of this beer was to equal out the IBU's, meaning with each addition of hops, they all be equal in IBU's (or close to it). I am very happy with the outcome. One thing, is that I propably should have put it in a secondary as there is a bit of sediment that is poured in my glass from the keg (from the first pour).
