Taste Notes

Stone XI Anniversary Black IPA


12/18: Brewday went without problems 12./19: Full blowoff 12/24: Steady fermentation 12/30: Read gravity to 1.052, which is very strange. Raised temp and will try again in a few days 1/2: SG @ 1.042. Very slow fermentation, may consider adding some SA-05 to speed things up 1/4: SG @ 1.040. Pitched a satchet of Safale-05 to hopefully get it to finish. Keeping temp around 72 1/8: SG @ 1.032. Moved upstairs into the kitchen, seeing some increased activity (slight krausen) 1/10: SG @ 1.027 going down but slooowly, the flavor is really starting to come out 1/10: Sidenote: Temps have been going up and down due to not being able to get a steady ambient in the office. Need to work on this... 1/11: Still at about 1.026, tastes great, so I may just rack it soon or leave it for a week while I'm out of town. Will decide on Friday 1/13: SG now at 1.022, will leave till Saturday and then rack 1/15: Racked to two kegs. Suspended two muslin bags with 2oz Simco + 2oz Amarillo into each kegs and placed in office. 1 week or so there... 1/27: Removed dry hops, awaiting bottling for one keg, hooked the other up to CO2 2/2: Bottled 4.4g from keg, easy and quick process and little waste when using CO2 to push the beer into the bottles. The taste is not as hoppy as expected, has a somewhat sour twang to it, but it certainly will be good with some aging 2/12: More sampling. A complex beer with both hops, malts, and other flavors. 2/18: Tried again - is aging very nicely!
