Just wanted to check my current situation. I have just upgraded from mister beer to a 5 gallon bucket. (I will be using a carboy once I find one, also am working on a buddy making me a conical fermentor, we'll see.
3.75 IPA extract, 2# DME, 1/2 # honey 2 oz wilamette hops last 10 as it cooled
So here is my question:
Beer seems extra dark, when I racked it to secondary, and had a dry bitter flavor.
Good but a little bite.
Is this going to be too strong(I don't have a hydrometer yet, next batch)
How much time do I give it before I rack it to bottles. It is running @ 65-69 deg
