Okay, I let the reduction boil for the 90 minutes then added it straight to the fermenter. So I would think that will help. Sorry for the resolution on this pic, I took it this morning in the basement before I left for work. The Krausen is about 1 finger tall.

Just transferred this to secondary. Overshot my OG by quite a bit due to high efficiency, so I'm looking at 7% now.

Very tasty though! This one won't last long.

Congrats Hinke! We picked up a couple golds, a silver and a bronze!

Largest attendance I've ever seen there and we have been going longer than I would care to admit. The T-Shirts and scoresheets usually don't show up for a couple weeks. They were planning on handing out the scoresheets but from I heard there were just too many and not enough volunteers.. not fact.. just what I heard. I do know that that comp is a huge undertaking and that they were really working their tales off. Hopefully they will get the results up soon. Hope to make it again next year.

CHEERZ!

Thanks!

My first time there and first time entering a beer in to the Bluebonnet

They had over 1800 entries total.

I judged one flight on Friday, then just had fun the rest of the time

Did not enter as new entrant...that's how little I know

This beer is on the schedule again. Can't wait to have it again.

This is not surprising at all. After trying several other Scottish 80/- recipes and finding -something- lacking, after tasting my first batch of this beer I knew it was going to be a regular on my shelves. I don't know whether it's the reduction or the peated malt that does it, but it's a winner.....

Brewed my second batch yesterday; this one's a keeper for sure! I remembered to do the reduction, but it looked like the level was a bit low after I sealed up the bucket. I'll have to remember to add more makeup water next time. That 90 minute boil and the reduction definitely use more than normal.....
