Default Uh oh... my porter might be going south on me...


Well, I took a gravity reading after about a week in the primary. I went ahead and tasted a sample and it seems as if it's going south. It's EXTREMELY bitter. It's a bit dissapointing because it had such a vigorous fermentation. Usually after a week I can tell where a brew is heading and never have I tasted a brew that was this bitter. I can taste the malt in there, which is good... Well, i'll let it age a bit and hope for the best.


Primary: Porter Potty (oaked porter)
Bottled (Drinking):
Next: IIPA

last batch review(Schwheat (wheat))

Appear: 3.5/5.
Mouthfeel: 3.5/5
Carb/Head: 3/5
Taste: 2.5/5
Overall: 3/5

An overall decent beer but it has too much of a banana character, I think it's because of fermenting at too high of a temp. Tasted better as it aged, but far from perfect.

Once the wind has been broken, it cannot be fixed.
