Taste Notes

Good beer. Straw yellow color, clean malt flavor, light, citrusy nose, great citurs flavor. Easy drinking. No harsh bitterness. I don't know where the hops are hiding in this beer. Very, very soft beer. Could be the large amount of wheat. A little thin in the body. More like a pale ale rather than an IPA but good nonetheless. I'd like to punch this up a bit. Add another half once of Centennial at the 60 minute mark. Needs more body too so a half pound of caripils should do it.

Notes

Had trouble holding mash temp. Too much water again. Go to 2.5 gal/pd. O.G. right on target. Lots of sludge in this one. Nice big frothy krausen about 1.5 inches high. After 24 hours after pitching, it's going strong. Have it in a tub of water and add plastic frozen soda bottles to keep it between 66 and 68 degrees. Strong hop aroma coming out of fermenter. Wow! Woke up this morning to a carboy and fermentation lock filled with krausen! Can't remember the last time that happened. Obviously, my mash temps have been way off and the fermentability of my wort has been low because of it. Glad I bought this lab accurate glass thermometer! I need a 6.5 gallon carboy.
