Hello Mr Ed,
First of all, I brewed up your haus pale ale and I have high hopes. Your claim is grain to glass in 10 days which is one of the reasons I wanted to try this. It has been 6 days today and I threw the hydrometer at it...1.010. Boom! (its still bubbling as we speak 6 days later) I didn't use Notty, I used US-05. So, here is my problem/question...I chose the 10 day option because I'm having a work party that I hoped it would be ready for. I tried the hydrometer sample tonight and it was very yeasty, but honestly smelled kick ass. So, I told you all of that to ask you this...how long do you think it will take for the yeasty flavor to go away? Will a cold crash help? I have a brown ale kegged that I can take as a replacement, but I don't want to keg this beer and show up with the yeasty flavors hangin out. (embarrassing) I have no doubt it will be phenomenal when its done but...have you had any trouble with it finishing early in the past? (kept it around 70 degrees the whole time..)
Thank for any help, and your recipes,
By the way, of all the recipes on the net-this is the second one of yours. The first was the apfelwein. Great brew and my wife love it, makes her goofy drunk!
