I ordered my corny keg this past thursday. I am piecing together my Keg equipment week by week till I get everything together. I wil be conditioning in my keg and racking it there next weekend after I sanatize my new keg. Has anybody tried this recipe AG yet? If so what is the differences you have had? I am really toying with the idea to go AG soon. But Keging os first on my brewing priority list (I am tird of botteling!). I also have another great recipe that is very simple but is very chocolatty if anybody is interested. It was my last brew before this one and I had great reviews from my favorite critics (buddies)!!!!

BOTTLED! Oh man, at first I thought it was more of an amber but after looking at your pic schlenkerla, it has the exact color qualities. And taste, though green, IS FREAKIN AMAZING.



edit* this is the very last bit that i got out of bottling so thats why the beer is so cloudy. Im sure it is going to clear up bigtime

So I tried a bottle yesterday after 3 weeks of conditioning. Still a very green beer and not the best head retention, however once the taste smoothes out a bit, this is going to be fantastic. Has anyone bottled this beer, and if so, how long did you let it condition for until it was just right?

I made this early this year and, if I remember correctly, started drinking under three weeks and it had a good head on it and tasted great. It was very smooth. So hopefully yours will be good within the next couple of weeks.

I don't have an infection and I'm still waiting on my kegged QIR to fully carbonate, but you did the right thing in not dumping it. It'll probably just need some aging. Give it time and it'll be okay.
