Taste Notes

I got the subtleness of the Juniper near the end of the finish I was looking for without detracting from the hop usage. I will try the same recipe by changing out the Maris Otter Malt for a Pale Malt for a different malt character for the Summer. Carbonation was perfect.


Soak .25 oz of Juniper berries in Gin for 24 hours then dry on paper towel before using them in seconday. Secondary no more than 48 hours. The flavor profile will be subtle in the back of the palate at the finish of the sip but not overwhelming.
