here are a couple pics, i bottled this today and was very pleased with the clarity :mug: tastes great, malty but not too much, and the spices are only around in the aftertaste and a little in the aroma , only way i can describe it is that they taste like they smell :D
first this is 87% effiency on your 2nd AG....very nice! My second though (to myself) is how in the hell is that possible. Whats ur setup (im jelous...). Also did you cold condition or use fining agents or both.
I will now go pout in the corner with envy.
this was in the primary for 10 and secondary for 10, no cold crashing. i cant wait to post up pics after its carbed :rockin:
my set up is beyond basic, here it is-
i heat the strike/sparge in the small kettle, mash in the cooler, and run off into the keggle.
That makes me feel better, your efficiency isn't based on post boil so I'm not so jealous now.
Just one run off???
Should clear up nicely though even chilled if you give it a good long time to cold condition.
You have to figure in volume to calculate your efficiency pre or post boil. Otherwise we'd all boil off a ton and brag about 100+%!
