1st gravity reading and after about 38 hours I'm already down from 1.050 to 1.010 ... Still has a little bit of sweet taste to it... but otherwise tastes like a great beer!

I really need to invest in a beer thief, I used the suck through the sanitized tubing and transfer to my test tube method and I'm always scared I'm going to introduce unwanted oxidation into the beer.

Default Ruination Clone - How Long in the Bottle?

Hey there,

I've just started brewing again after a 12 year hiatus, and decided to aim high and try out a Ruination clone recipe.

Everything went pretty well, and now I'm wondering how long I should wait until trying one out. 3 weeks? 4? 6? 8?

How about right now?

Now?

safale o5 is perfect for ipa's. slow down your sparge run-off rate and you will get amazing efficiency. that and a good crush is the key to good efficiency. don't worry about the IBU's. even if it is too bitter at first, it will mellow out after a few weeks.

I tried a Ruination clone earlier in the year and out of my 13 AG brews to date, this was the first one to not really turn out well. I missed my OG and was 12 points low so it came out very bitter. Drinkable but not that great. Aroma and color were spot-on but when my wife tried it you would of thought she bit into a whole grapefruit with the expression. I will try it again though....

With the recipe i used, It came out very citrusy (i'm assuming from the dry hopped nugget hops) ... But all my buddies that drank the free beer I had (ski patrol for all you Three Sheet's watchers) they said that was one of the best qualities of the beer, aside from it being free for them and getting them drunk...

I kegged it impatiently at 13 days... and after about 2 additional weeks the flavors really melded together making a great beer. I'd say give an IPA at least a month if your impatient.. but two months would be better if you have something else to drink in the mean time
