I checked the beer yesterday and it smelt fine and tasted like miller high life or something, supposed to be a heff. Checked the hydrometer and was reading between 1.10 and 1.20. About 1% abv. Added 3 lbs of DME to increase flavor and abv. Should finish at 4% abv and taste more like a heff. we will see, I will rack off in the secondary this Wednesday and leave for another week before kegging. However, I should be drinking my first Homebrew on the super bowl! Fairbanks is cold man! I don't think I could handle that, great summers though. I may be heading up your way in the spring to hunt a black bear.
