Just an update to say that I transferred the brew from the primary to the secondary this weekend and had a taste. Quite bitter and not too sweet. So far so good.

I bottled it on Saturday. The FG was about 1.010 or maybe 1.011.

It is promising so far. Nice and bitter... not too sweet... actually not very sweet at all. Medium to light body.

However, I'm going to let it condition for at least a week before drinking any.

I'm guessing that we may need to make some tweaks to either the recipe or the method... but we seem to be in the ballpark.

Are there any Deuchar's drinkers reading this that might be interested in providing some feedback and helping with the recipe? Orfy?

I would be glad to help, but would have to go from memory. Wish I could do a side by side test, but I finished the last Deuchars I brought back. It was consumed out on the farm and the empty can tossed into the back of my truck. When I went to clean my truck I didn't have the heart to get rid of that last can of one of my favorite beers. I must be the only country boy in the States that has a can of Deuchars rolling around in truck.

Not much more I can do unless you are very good at explaining what the beer is like.

the high bitterness is probably due to your gravity coming out low. you would have gotten a higher utilization of the hops in the boil and you won't have the maltiness to balance it.

Mmm yes I was thinking that Deuchars isn't a very bitter beer normally. Served in my local and other pubs I frequent (although to be honest it's almost always outclassed though so I don't drink it a huge amount).

I am very interested in this beer because while it isn't quite hoppy enough for me, it is the general direction of flavour I want from my beer. Hopping it up is easy enough from that point, I'm just curious how to best get that nice pale ale flavour and especially the aftertaste.

I just popped open a bottle of this and it tastes pretty good. A little light on body and a little hoppier than expected in some ways. Thinking that the low gravity is probably the issue.

Overall a nice beer that I'm looking forward to tweaking and brewing again. I'm thinking that if I get better efficiency from the specialty grains it might move it a little more in the desired direction.
