Filling the fermenters:
Got about 11 gallons total. The massive amount of hop sludge in the boil kettle sucked up a good gallon of wort.
Hop Stopper showing the level of hop sludge:
Reminds of me of the kind of sludge I get when I brew Pliny the Elder
. Similar but different... the sludge this time was not as light. It was more compact.
All cleaned up:
Heading to the bar for a beer (and to post this):
So how does the wort taste? Very hoppy as you would imagine, but not a bitter as when I've made other extremely hoppy beers such as Pliny or HopSlam. The aroma is over the top.
Yeast has been pitched (WY1056 in one fermenter, US-05 in the other) so time will tell if the aroma/flavour subsides from fermentation.
