Well FG was 1.017 a respectable 6.5% ABV

Now that said the slight sour flavor I thought it had has turned into more band-aid flavor..

Reading around, realized its probably my water or a slight infection (give the sour notes I had tasted).

In either case, is there anything that can be done about that.. or will it just be there.. Its not horrible.. but it is a weird flavor towards the end. Otherwise its very smooth.. probably going to bottle in a week or two. Have to get the secondary cleared for the RIS I am doing..

Bottled last night.. a 5L mini-Keg, (2) 1L growlers, and about 36 bottles.

The off flavors have all but disappeared.. The end result of the honey was to give it a nice dry finish. Not a harsh alcohol dryness, more of a sharp fresh finish.

I REALLY can't wait to try this.. in about a month our Local HB Association is having a extract contest.. I think I shall enter it

Next up a Oak chip soaked in Rum and chocolate infused, Russian Imperial Stout..

The RIS has now lost all bubbles in the primary, (been on primary almost 3 weeks now)..

Going to put it into the SS Secondary, and cold condition it like a lager.. think that should give it a real nice smooth finish.
