Default Extract - Ugly Bitch Brown Ale

Recipe Type: Extract
Yeast: 1275 Thames Valley
Yeast Starter: Nope
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: no
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5
Original Gravity: 1.054

This was a recipe that has led me to one conclusion, I hate the taste of caramunich malt when it is still young in the bottle, after a month or so its ok but right now it is nasty. Both my Vienna and this beer have had caramunich and I dont like it at all.

6# Breiss Light DME
.25# Caramunich
.25# Flaked Barley
.25 Carafoam
3oz Special B

1oz EKG (60)
1oz EKG (23)

Steeped grains in 2 gallons water with flaked barley for 60min @ 156. Brought water up to 6.75 gallons and brought to a boil.
Hopped on schedule
1Tbsp Irish moss and Yeast Nutrient @ 20

Are you sure it is the caramunich, have you ever eaten a handful of it? I always eat right out of the bins when I am at the LHBS.

Yeah I am dead sure. Although it does mellow and get much better over time it is not my favorite.

Well the caramunich has mellowed and its pretty good now, just a very very slight hint of it. However, it is so overcarbed its rediculous. It almost explodes in your mouth, and gives the worst burps ever.
