Just be patient with it. I've had this thing take as long as 3 weeks to finish active fermentation due to the slightly cooler temps I use.

This thing has been pretty damn good the times I have brewed it before, but the batch I just recently made is still in primary and I haven't tasted it yet. Planning to rack t tomorrow and will have my first sample then.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it'll be fantastic (that's why I'm brewing it). But if it's not, I'm blaming you! Jk, haha

But, I'm here in South Texas and it'll be next to impossible to keep at 60, so I might have to shoot for 65 and work my butt off to keep it there. We'll see what I can do.

But thanks for the recipe, and I'll let you know how it turns out

Cheers

Default Too warm??


Hey Walker, I've been fighting the temps on this one. It's been real tough for me in my swamp cooler to keep it at 65. Even getting close to 70 after 3 or 4 days. Hopefully it'll turn out alright, but I'll let you know here in October

The batch I made last month is due to be kegged within the next couple of days. It probably won't be carbed and on tap until the end of the month.

As soon as it's ready, I'll post a pic of a pint of it.

So this is the beer I just won? I'll post my own tasting notes when I get it.

yup. this is it.

Be aware that my efficiency was at Rock Star levels the day I made this. If I recall correctly, it came out near 1.060... maybe a little higher.

Well, guess it's a 90-schilling, then!

Let's just hope it wasn't the good tasting half that went down the driveway...

I am enjoying this right now. Huge creamy piles of fluffy small bubbles covering a malty sweet beverage. My best brew so far. Thanks walker.

I fermented mid to high sixties. No starter. Boil only 60 minutes. Added an oz of smoked malt(not sure if this is noticeable). Used golden promise 2-row. Efficiency was way off that day... only hit 1.050. 4 weeks in primary and was ready to drink.
