    So bottled this....and I have to say after 1 week... Its tasty. My wife said "tastes like a
    brown IPA." I can pick a roasty, almost coffee note from it. Cidery note from the yeast is very
    muted. This ...

    Thers your problem, if you use this yeast, a nice low temp is best.70F Ambient is too high,
    meaning you temp is a few degrees warmer, which will throw off all sorts of weird esters and
    flavours. which...

    Ambient air was 70F. I know the internal temp can be 8-10 degrees higher than ambient. It felt
    slightly warm to the touch during fermentation. Have never had any issues with Nottingham or
    Safale 05......

    So just to update....The beer finished around 1.013 so its about 8.5 %. A bit bigger than AB.
    Color is very close as is the bitterness. Very fruity flavor. My one issue was using Safale 04.
    If I brew ...

    1.077.Rehydrated 2 pa...

    Down to my last bottle. So this spent 2 months in primary, another year in secondary. Wish I
    would have oaked it but oh well. Split the batch. Bottled half straight, the other half primed
    with black c...

    I also live in Santa Rosa and have to treat the mash with acid to prevent astringent flavors
    caused by having too high a PH. Santa Rosa water is treated with Lye, and is ridiculously
    alkali. I've pret...
