Ok, one day I will understand this!

My grain bill will come to 5kg so will adjust the volumes up slight, but will target the SG you mention earlier with the sparge.

thanks

This is in the keg but I haven't tapped it yet. I got a little behind my intended schedule. The taste I had when I put it in the keg was really good.

First pint. It was pretty darn good despite being cloudy and a bit green. I expect it will clear up a little as I pull a few more pints and it settles. Excited to share with family and friends and excited to try the all grain recipe too.

That looks fantastic. Mine is in the fermenter and SG has hit 1.01 so will be coming out soon.

What pressure do you carbonate to? for bottles?

thanks

I set it at 15 for a few days then dialed it back to about 9 and that's where I've got it now. Seems to be properly carbed but not foaming too much.

Just so happens I am making my 20th batch of this tomorrow also. I will be putting in a few changes to the original recipe that some other brewers have suggested. I would like to have this kegged and carbed for my daughter's first birthday in late October. (No...the beer won't be for her but for our adult friends with years of experience raising kids.)

I wanted to clear this up so I tried the gelatin trick for the first time. Seems to have helped immensely. Not crystal clear but better. Taking the rest of the keg to a party tomorrow. I think it will be a hit.

How long has this been chilled? The beer looks great.
