Taste Notes

Pepper is not overpowering at all.


- Overall, I am happy with the grain bill and hops. We had to tweak a few items, but overall it is what I was targeting. The acids in the hops purchased were a bit higher than what I expected so I have altered my boil schedule a bit. - Intentionally leaving our the Whirfloc so that the beer has a slight haze that is typical to this rustic, farmhouse style ale. - Mash Out and Sparging took longer than expected but there was great conversion in the mash. -
