Yes you can age in a keg. I say you have yourself a nice hoppy beer.

Might want to post your full recipe for some feedback. That's an unusual hop schedule. Nothing wrong with unusual, but if you're going for a certain hop profile, there are a lot of experienced brewers here who can help.

I think it was:

6 lbs. light dme
1 lb. 80l crystal
1 lb. 20l crystal
hops above.


Sort of a strange recipe i think. Very limited selection at my LHBS. I didnt originally plan to use all those hops, but I had them in the fridge, and thought they might make up for the lack of other ingredients. Plus i like really hoppy beer.

I think next time I will order all my ingredients online and stick to a specific recipe, instead of creating my own based on what ingredients are locally available.

Nothing wrong with making a frankenbrew out of whatever you have available. And welcome to the forum!

Default Update

The beer was in the primary for 4 weeks while i was trying to find a regulator. I kegged it yesterday and force carbed it and tasted it this morning. Its tasty. much better than i could have hoped for. Its a little strong, i think because i didnt use enough water. I ended up with a little over 4 gallons in the keg. I need to mark my carboy at 5 gallons so i dont have to guess anymore.

Overall i think this is the best batch i have made. Im going to start a similar batch today, using the correct amount of water, and slightly less hops(2 oz chinook, 2 oz sterling). I am also going to use a secondary fermenter this time and maybe dry hop. something like this:

6 lbs. light dme
1 lb. caramel 60l
2 oz. chinook 14%
2 oz. sterling 5.9%
1 oz. N. brewer 7.1 pellets dry hop

Anything else i should add? Irish moss? More extract?

I think i'll try to make some apfelwein also.
