Would some folks please comment on their experiences with the taste of this brew after fermenting for three weeks (if anyone has snuck a taste before conditioning
). I was checking gravity yesterday before bottling and although I'm sure there was probably some starsan in the mix and the flatness affected the taste, it seemed a little thin and diluted to me. I could detect a good base flavor in there and I'm hoping there things I noticed are just because it's not finished.
I went with the modified ratio recommendation with less roasted barley mentioned after the original post and hit the OG right on -- I think my mash temp was a little low for medium body so that could be part of it. On the advice of my LHBS I only pitched half the vial of Irish Ale yeast into my 1 gallon batch. Comparing the color to some of the pictures in the thread it seemed a little light as well (probably because of the lower roasted barley quantity), but that could also be a factor of looking at it in the test jar vs. a proper pint.
Thanks for the feedback!
