So my first brew ever was supposed to be an oatmeal stout, but I realized a few days ago that instead of dark extract, like the recipe called for, I used amber extract. So that got me worried about what kind of beer it would turn out to be. My fears were laid to rest just now when I took a gravity to make sure I will be ready to bottle tomorrow. Based on the OG, FG, color and calculated IBUs, it's going to be a brown ale, which I tend to enjoy. What's more, upon taste testing, it reminded me a lot of Newcastle. So hopefully it will stay that way once it's done and I will have an accidental Newcastle clone recipe. Wouldn't that be exciting, huh? I imagine you all are probably not interested in hearing about the screwups of a new brewer, but I am excited that it's going to turn out good despite my lack of attention to detail.
