Taste Notes

Hot and harsh. In hindsight I under-pitched old yeast and did not sufficiently oxygenate the wort. This could be a good recipe with those mistakes corrected.


BIAB bag was broken, so I improvised by stapling an old t-shirt. It worked well, but. The shirt did absorb and wick away a fair amount of water, the pre-boil volume was a bit low. Hit mash temp initially, but it didn't hold. Probably sat closer to 150 on avg. when it did slip I turned on and turned up the stovetop. Gravity and volume ended up on point. Ran wort chiller and added to swamp bucket before pitching. Ambient temp approx 76, wort approx 90, water temp approx 50. Cloaked in a tshirt to have evaporative cooling. Will let temp in cooler slowly rise after active fermentation is done. Racked and bottled after a few weeks in the secondary. Ended up with 7 22oz bombers. Primed with 8 Munton's carb tabs per bomber. Samples looked and tasted excellent, if a bit dry.
