Taste Notes

This is a good clean ale. Just a hint of bitterness and clean tasting with a nice amout of body and color. Very nice. Let's remove the Rye and add a 1 pd. of honey malt next time.


Brew in the Bag method: This is how I calculated the water: 5.0 gal. (fermentation amount) plus 1.0 gal. evaporation (over the hour boil) plus 1.0 gal. absorption rate ( .10 x 10 pds. of grain). So we will start with 28 qts. or 7.0 gal. Mashout at 170 deg. for 10 min. Starter: 600 ml. of water, 3 oz. of LDME, 3 pieces of hop pellets, and 3 drops of anti-foam. Disaster! Set my pants on fire! Too close to the burners while stirring the mash. OG right on target at 1.055! Started fermenting about 10 hours. About an inch high krausen. Not a real violent bubling action. Started to really peter out after three days.
