Brewing and bottling this batch currently. Will update with details as they arise. brew date: 1/25/2015 Projected two plus weeks in primary at 68° first 24hrs , 70° until complete. Three to four weeks bottle conditioning, then in the fridge until perfect . - Day 1-2 extremely aggressive fermentation. Rigged a blowoff tube for the first time. 33% headspace was crushed lol - Day 3-5 Replaced blowoff with airlock. Steady fermentation. Slowing on day 5. Still steady though. 1-2 bubbles through airlock every minute or two. - Day 8! Still actively fermenting. Has not slowed at all. Actually fermenting slightly faster! -Day 9 Chugging away. Fermentation sped up again steady bubble or two a second.. wow! -day 11 airlock activity finished out. Going to test gravity in a couple days -Day 21 fermentation completed. Added 5oz corn sugar, bottling bucket and bottled. Tasted of strong booze and lots of other flavors- malty, honey, clove, vanilla, bananas. Definitely needs to meld and mellow. Will check back in about 2wks and 2 days for a taste from the bottle and to check aging. Got a little over two cases so got some testers. -March 7th, day 41(I think). Put bottles in fridge. Will taste again in two weeks. Fridged and Tasted one a week ago and not ready. Gonna be good though. - ----after about three weeks in the bottle and three weeks in the fridge... PERFECT. BOOZY AND MALTY.. YUM. definitely going to get even better with age
