This is it! Dusselforf Altbier. Oxygenated with pure O2, 3Liters of 1007 German Ale yeast starter has been pitched and it is in the fermentation chamber at 65 degrees F.


This is the calculator that figured the efficiency of the brewery. WOW... is all I can say! I am honestly very surprised. And, I did not taste any tannins at all!

Modification
After being informed by an Altbier Guru, I have bumped the ferm temp down to 56*f. Hope I am not too late. I already have krausen forming on top...

Drumroll please... First Batch on the new brewery / First AG Batch / First Competition results as follows:








Well... With VERY much surprise, I accepted the First place award for German Altbier category in The O'Zapft Is! German Homebrew Competition. There were 109 entries total from several different States and the Altbier category was the largest of all the categories. Thanks to my LHBS Owner, Stubby for the help with the recipe! I brought home this EXCELENT medal and HUGE boot - as well as a good dose of Confidence that I am heading the right direction and listening to some GREAT advice from seasoned and experienced brewers and putting it to practice.

I just realized that I started cutting wood and building my brewery on April 1st. I posted the 1st place on October 1st. Full circle in 6 months... That was a BUSY 6 months! Where did the time go?

Congrats Huaco! It's a lot of work putting one of these systems together from start to finish - 6 months is much better than where I'm at, but I'm getting there too. Glad to hear that your first AG grain was so successful. Keep the updates coming!
