1.092 in a month? I'd be curious to see how that turns out. Please keep us updated.

yeah it looks like i was over ambitious. 10 days later and the gravity in the primary has dropped to 1.025, but i would still like to go a bit further and it's still bubbling away, so i will leave it in the primary for at least another 4 days.


i did take a taste and wow, i think this one will be great.

17 days in the primary and just transferred to the secondary cold-crashing in the beer fridge. FG reading is at 1.02. So went from 1.092 to 1.020.

Took a little taste and it has a sweet front flavor and also a little woody aftertaste. hmm not sure about that but hopefully it will even out a bit over the next couple weeks in the secondary.

well i didn't quite get this ready for World Cup Final, that was too ambitious. i had it kegged 4 days before the game and took a taste and it turned out great but i decided it was more important to be patient and let this one age a few more weeks. i think it will be well worth the wait.

cheers!

Was thinking about using this grainbill for a IIPA. Don't have all the hops so I will substitue some.

How did this finish tastewise? Did it finish on the drier tasting side and hoppy (think ruination, or pliny) or super-sweet and hoppy (think maharaja, or hopsickle)?
