Wyeast-1028 had 73% attenuation, more hot alcohol taste (was due to the warmer fermentation temps I think, 71 degrees), taste was a bit sharp and bitter and dry. Liked the WLP-028 much better. Could use a bit more hop aroma and higher mash temp to make it less dry. Nice color, maybe another 2 to 3 weeks in the bottle will make it clearer....... if it lasts that long


glad you liked it! as far as more hop aroma, true to the style it has little to no hop aroma on purpose. That said I have dry hopped this beer and the results were fantastic.

The hot alcohol flavor in the 1028 beer is from the high temps. it "might" fade with age but the best thing to do is control the temps and keep it in the mid-upper 60's.

Really enjoyed this brew! Couldn't find caraaroma; subbed .5 lb each crystal 120 & special B; not quite as red as I'd hoped. Very tasty. Friends all loved it! Will definitely be brewing this on a regular basis.

Just brewed this last night, very excited. The hydrometer sample isn't that red, more of a light brown. Is it possible it will redden up, or is this probably what its going to stay at?

If so that's fine, as long as it still tastes delicious, but I loved those bright red pic's others posted.
