This beer is tasty as soon as its carbed. But if you wanna wait till its more heady you gotta give it more time. At least that was my experience when I made this.

Well, I just packaged this (25% in bottles, rest in Keg). Started at 1.070 and finished at 1.012 for 7.58% ABV!

Here is where I'm worried: The gravity sample tasted weird. I've made about 30 different batches of beer, and only one of those wasn't great. It was a pumpkin that had a weird sourness to it. This gravity sample reminded me of that flavor. It's not Brett sour, and the fermentation looked completely normal. I used US-05.

Any thoughts?

Hopefully it will be better when carbed and cold, but I'm not optimistic.

I just kegged mine

OG was 1.060 and FG was 1.010,

The sample tasted very citrusy.

Give it some time in the bottle then see if it hangs around. Could condition out in a few weeks.

Picked up the last ingredients for a batch of this yesterday. I'll be following the recipe exactly (with the exception of batch size) and can't wait to see how it turns out. This will be my first non-extract brew utilizing BIAB. I'll make a starter tomorrow and brew on Saturday morning. I'll keep you posted on how it turns out.

Thanks for the recipe!!!

Congratulations on moving up from extract, my advice would be to write out a cooking plan...it will help you be better prepared for the various steps you need to take and will eliminate the chance of you forgetting something...also when scaling back, always check your math twice...wrong calculation will change the beer completely. Happy brewing, can't wait to see what you think of the recipe!

This recipe is awesome. All the ladies in my life liked it. I also liked this recipe. I harvested the yeast from the first batch and did a two step starter to get enough yeast for the second batch. First time I had done a two step starter. That batch is in the keg now carbonating. Should be ready in another week to ten days. Can't wait.
