Taste Notes

The gravity in the Ferm Ops was 1.018 after primary and diacetyl rest and the gravity in the carboys were 1.020. (7/24/14) Beer foamed when samples taken for gravity, but passed the taste test. Total time in primary and diacetyl rest was 15 days. Recipe calls for ramp down to 48, but we just crashed it to 48. After aging and sitting in bottles for a couple of months, a smoky flavor became overpowering and made the beer practically undrinkable. (11-05-14)
