Based off Papazian's Palace Bitter, here is what I brewed:
5 lbs. English light dried malt extract
12 oz. Crystal malt (60L)
0.75 oz. English Fuggles (boiling - 60)
0.75 oz. Kent Goldings (boiling - 60)
0.25 oz. English Fuggles (flavor - 30)
0.25 oz. Kent Goldings (flavor - 30)
0.5 oz. Kent Goldings (15)
0.5 oz. Kent Goldings (aroma - 2)
TOTAL HOPS: 1 oz. Fuggles; 2 oz. Goldings
Wyeast British Ale 1098 - pitched at 70 degrees
0.75 cup corn sugar for priming
I had in the primary for one week, secondary for two, and it's been priming for two weeks now. I tried one at 10 days, and one at two weeks and they tasted the same. Pretty full bodied, very sweet, almost too much so (almost Boch-like), and almost no trace of hops at all. There's a slight dry finish to it, but that's all. And they seem very under carbonated. Good head when I first pour, but that falls pretty quick.
I don't have gravity readings because my hydrometer was giving me false info and I didn't become aware of until until later.
Does this just seem right for the recipe? Should I have let it ferment longer? Give it more time in the bottles? Is there any reason it would seem so flat, and so sweet?
