I got my first somewhat-clean sample of this today.. I have had it on gas about a week now, and have pulled a 1/2cup measure or so each day to get the skank out of the bottom of the keg and see how it's doing (I'm a pretty new brewer - gotta experience everything, y'know?
) and in that week it's gotten itself to being one madman of a brew. This, folks, is one serious beer. It's not nearly clear yet, but with my questionable process I'm not surprised. I hit a big efficiency and attenuated well with the 22g of Nottingham I (over)pitched, and wound up with a 7.5% ABV beer. Can't imagine how good this is going to be after it's been cooling for a couple weeks and had time to get itself into proper form. I bottled off four bombers, too, and I think I'll stash them 'til Independence Day to see what happens. I may just be on my third keg of the stuff by then... So it'll be nice to compare "keg-fresh" to "finely conditioned" and see how they compare.
Thanks again, Yoop.
