Really cool. I'm interested in how it ends up tasting.

I am very interested to know if lentils will self-convert.

Yup, me too. I've got the lentils for batch #3 soaking - total contribution and conversion testing are on the slate.

Bottling the first batch of beer on Monday - taste-test result by St Patty's day!

Pre-bottling, I estimate the colour to be between 6-8L. (I made colour swatches, and held them up against the fermenter...) Still got a bit of orange to it!

Priming syrup just went on the stove-top.

Yup. I guess I could drink it with a bowl of mushroom soup, and perhaps sprinkle fried onions in the glass...!*

It appears to be bottle carbing nicely. Though I'm tempted, I don't try my beers before 16 days. Why 16? Because when I used to try drink 'em as fast as possible after priming, I noticed the suck went away around day 16, no earlier.

Round three lentilmalz is ready to brew/play with. I was on the road for a fair chunk of the last week, which is why I've been slow to update.

Cheers!

*Do people outside of Minnesota, North Dakota, Manitoba and Saskatchewan make green been casserole/hotdish? Is this a totally upper-midwestered-Cdn-prairies phenomenon? My foodie buddies even made a high-end version, with a buttery bechamel, morel mushrooms, tender fresh beans, and carmelized sweet onions once...but I digress.
