On CO2 last night and tasting really good not fully carbed yet. Camel taste is there giving it a full favored beer. Very pleasing but not over powering taste.

It's not particularly bitter. I think I've decided that this brew just doesn't fit with my preferences. I tend to like big hoppy or malty beers. This is not either. So now I give it to friends who like mellow beers and drink my other brews.

If you want it more hoppy. Dry hop it. Simcoe or cascade hops work very well in this case.

I prefer dromedary myself. All the flavour with half the humps.

All typographical sarcasm aside, this is a lovely brew and I'll be bottling my latest batch of it this weekend.

Brian, I'm going to brew a batch of this in a couple of days. I've never used gelatin could you fill me in on how to use it? Thanks!

Add half a packet of knox unflavored gelatin (or whatever you get from the homebrew shop) to about 4 fluid ounces of cold, filtered water. Let it sit for like 10-15 minutes to dissolve and hydrate. Then heat the mixture up to approximately 170-180 degrees F to pastuerize, but be sure not to let it boil. Then pull it off the heat and let it cool slightly before adding it to the beer to be cleared. I like to add it to a carboy and rack beer from the primary over it to be sure it gets mixed in. Then let it settle for a few days and you'll have clear beer. The cooler you can let it rest, the more of the chill-haze I find it removes. Good luck!

Brian, thanks for the quick reply & info I really appreciate it. I'm a big fan of amber ales and I think this is one is going to be awesome. What is a good target temp to reach before adding the gelatin? Again, never used it before so I don't want to screw up the batch out of ignorance ): Thanks!

It's probably fine to add the gelatin to the beer straight off the heat, but I always let it cool for 20-30 minutes or so first. I don't think hitting an exact temp is critical.

EDIT: and if you were asking about target temp for the beer and not the gelatin, then anything below about 45 is good. The cooler the better.

Just bought the supplies for my first non-kit and first All-grain recipe, can't wait to taste this one. Ended up buying the Belgian candi this time, wanted to simplify the process a little but I'm sure I'll probably make it next time.
