Taste Notes

Good beer. Sweet, sort of a cream soda taste. I could see substituting 60L for the 40L crystal. Add .5 pd. of acid malt to give it a little twang. Too much vanilla. Real Mexican vanilla is very strong suff. Add only a half oz. next time. Use WLP005 British yeast next time. Probably could bump up the bitterness a few points to balance out the sweetness.


Toasted oats at 300 deg. for 1 hour, turning every 15 min. Slight browing. Could probably take it up to 325 deg. Conditioned grains and crushed grains twice. Used about 2.5 gal. of water per pound of grain. Came up about a half gallon short, but that allowed me to add cold water to drop the temp. Mash temp was off by about 2 deg. again. Seems high everytime. O.G. great at 1.060. Fermentation started in an amazing 5 hours and was going strong (almost constant) the next day. Fermenting in container of water at about 70 deg. Added 1 oz. of mexican vanilla extract added.
