1st pour today. Tastes pretty good for my first time. Wife likes it as well and says has a good aftertaste. Having some issues with my pour. Lots of head. Running 6 ft lines at 8psi. Carbed at 30 psi for about 30 hours and then 10 for about 20. Not sure if maybe I over carbonated at 30?
well today I kegged the beer. FG 1.014. Only ended up with about 3 gallons of beer though. Lost during boil and fermentation. So my next kit I plan to boil 6 gallons instead and hope that compensated for the loss. Beer is gonna be strong OG was 1.072. But it’s for sure drinkable, so...
Took a FG reading today, day 15. 1.014 right on target. Clearing up nicely and flavor seemed good. Gonna take another reading Tuesday. Then cold crash and keg... so far seems like a successful first batch!!
First batch of cider. It’s a pineapple cider recipe. Right now it’s been fermenting for 4 days. Got Rhino Farts like crazy lol... gonna try and be patient and let it age after I rack it to a secondary. But I’m gonna need luck and strength to make it lol.
curious why S-04 yeast was used for this recipe? Right now I have a batch going following the above directions and got serious “Rhino Farts” going on. Hoping the rack to a secondary helps get rid of any sulfar.
