I have been wanting to brew this recipe for several months. I've had the ingredients on-hand, but this summer's weather has just been too hot to brew. Today, however, we received some blessed RAIN...and thunder! So, it quickly became a good time to brew.
I'm glad I started the dark amber candi syrup well in advance of the last 15 minutes of the boil! It sure did take its own good-natured time to get up to 290°F!!!
I put the beer into the fermenter about an hour ago. It sure did look and smell good!
And brewing the beer was a good way to celebrate our 43rd Wedding Anniversary! I think this batch will be called "Anniversary Amber Ale." Nice alliteration going, there!
