Up stairs it came pronto. No airlock activity and by the time I bought a new hydrometer it was done. Left it in the primary and bottled from there. I was bummed so I brewed it again thinking this was going to a so-so brew.

Friggin great! I'll have almost 10 gallons in bottles next week Yee-Haw!

I know how you feel, but my batch went the other way. My air conditioner went out a couple days and temps hit the 80's! It's back working now but I'm wondering what may result from this...

How far in was it when the ac went out?
Early in, should be "hot" with more fusel alcohols
If later, probably won't matter much.

Now that you mention it, it was about 8-9 days in from yeast pitch. Should have done most of the fermenting by that point...

While I'm not the authority of Yooper, Reevy, or Lil Sparky,the master of this brew. I doubt it'll be undrinkable, although there may be some off flavors that might make it a little strange over time.

Yeah I doubt you notice any off flavors if it was 8 days after pitching. High krausen was probably 4-5 days in. Let us know how it turns out when you try the first one.

I'm cooling the first few today. Can't wait to try it because it tasted really good at bottling. I hit my numbers on this beer better than any prior AG brew I've done. I'll be back with the tasting notes by tonight.

Default Nut Brown AG


I am pleased with my first nut brown! It had a very good color and taste was on the mild side. Malty but only a bit of bitter from the Columbus. Mild fruit also comes thru from the Notty. It is very young (2 weeks in the bottle) and will surely age into a better product. About 6/10 is my rating.

Update: after 2 weeks now the beer is rounding out nicely! It has more caramel sweetness and a great head. I had to adjust my rating to 7.5/10.
