So I just finished bottling my beer today and thought I would try the 2-3 fl. oz. of beer remaining in the bottom of my bottling buket. I tried it and it was extremely sweet. I'm not to sure what I did wrong? This was my first real five gallon batch aside from the (Mr. Beer days.)
I'm a noob and forgot to take a OG and a FG of my beer so please don't ask...
I fllowed a simple Northwest recipe...
The recipe was:
malts- 7 lbs. of Amber Malt Extract (wet)
Hops- 1 oz. of Mt. Hood (bittering)
1 oz. Cascade (finishing)
Yeast and Adjuncts- Wyeast Northwest ale
1/4 tsp. Irish Moss
I added my bittering hops once the wort was at a boil. Then I let the wort boil for 55 mins. and added my finishing hops and Irish moss. I let the finishing hops boil for 5 mins. then I removed the wort from the stove. I chilled the wort for a good hour brought it to 65-75 degrees and pitched my wyeast.
My Primary fermentation was for 7 days and my secondary was for 14 days at 65-75 degrees for both stages.
I made damn sure that everything and I mean EVERYTHING that came in contact with my beer had been Sanitized with one-step. So I don't think it was lack of cleanliness.
Any suggestions or advice you could give to a noob I would greatly appreciate it!
