I recently moved to Vermont and fell in love with Shed Mountain Ale. I just started brewing a few weeks ago, so of course, I wanted to give it a shot!! I used the posted recipe, and also subbed Carastan, but with CaraMunich I. I also used a full ounce for each of the hops. Looks, smells and tastes great so far. Fermenting like a champ at the moment. OG was 1.078, so a lilttle higher than the targeted 1.072, but I'm not complaining.
I'm looking for some advice, however. The posted recipe calls for 2 wks fermentation. Is the full 2 necessary, or can I cut it down some?? Any advice is appreciated!
