So, brewing version 2 on Monday. The first attempt came out decent, drinkable and in fact is about gone now. It had a pretty distinctively bitter bite late on the tastebuds that I want to try to resolve, also looking for more malt bitterness as opposed to Hop bitter.
I was out eating dinner last night and I came a crossed a new homebrew store, one that is actually closer than the one I had been going to Score! So I went ahead and bought my ingredients. Well not having my list with me I went from memory (with adjustments in mind) and actually got the wrong base grain (2 row pale instead of marris otter) and they didnt carry wyeast so i subbed the 1968 for White Labs 002. I also upped the biscuit hoping for a more malt / biscuit taste.
