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.
