Thanks guys!! Just checked gravity. It's 1.009, so it's quite near what I expected attenuation.
Tastes decent too! I wonder why it's still got krausen and still burping a bit.

I was going to check grav, then cold crash, but with the krausen, I don't know. I like to see
the ferm through. I'm surprised it's doing anything at all @ 61F! I was wondering if it's some

Hiya! So, I brewed a week ago. Just a basic pale, 1.045 og. Cali Ale yeast. I've used this
yeast several times in my short brewing career. It tends to gobble up most sugars relatively
quickly, and I k...

I REALLY want to make a "clone" of this American take on the bitter. However, I want about 0.5%

to be a p...

It's delicious! Piney, spicy, touch of tropics. Big bready malt. Almost medium bodied. Great
job to me! I feel so good!

Oh, this batch came out bitter, and watery, no malt flavor at all -at least after primary. I
put it in the keg and purged o2 until I decide what to do next. Thanks!

Hey all! Thanks for input. I kept the grain bill largely the same, but I subbed candi sugar for
dark brown sugar. Still learning about redundancies, so, duly noted. :)

hand. Molasses too. Not sure what to do. Definitely don't want to dry out beer, though.
