Yeah sorry about that, I bottled them with a bottling wand off the keg. I was lazy and did not get my counter pressure filler out. Hopefully the other one will be a little better.Tried the 1098, and it was good. The only issue I have is that it lacked carbonation...very little.
They put it off till last Tuesday so it has only been a few days, still pretty sore but I think I am going to live. Funny though, the workers comp people called yesterday and asked if I was ready to go back to light duty! Ha, whatever, I am a carpenter, not much light duty there. Doctors office called after that and set a tentative date for 8 weeks out. I will probably go back sooner, gotta talk to my boss and see when he is going to have some (light duty) finish work ready.How'd your surgery turn out? I couldn't do anything for 6 weeks or so.
Yes do tell. While my package from @TBC did arrive in perfect condition, I have only tried the blackberry wheat so far. I remember it being tart and good but I waited too long to review it and dont remember anything else. I am going to try the NEIPA in a little while, I will report back.how did all the other trades come out ... do tell people ... do tell
Had the FC last night and have the Porter in the fridge now.p= yep
BOMM= Brays one month mead
fc= fruitcake cider
cb= currant berry cider
The ESBs are my Red Hook ESB clone, a 10 gallon batch split. Half was fermented with 1098 the other half was fermented with S-05. Let me know what you think.
Yeah Scturo's kid made the label for me. I love it!
Brutal doesn't help, constructive does.Do tell what you think, be brutal.
"Brutal doesn't help, constructive does.
"Neither ESB we're carbonated which was sad, but flavor wise they were both tasty."
My bad really, I did some reading on carbing to style and lowered the pressure on the ESB then bottled with a wand off the keg and lost what little carb was left. My wife, who I make this for, did not like it with the lower carb so I since cranked it up and she happily drank it all. I owe you on this one.
"I wasn't a big fan of the cider, but I haven't looked my own either so there's that. I also like a bubbly, carbonated cider...no carb."
Which cider did you try? I think all of them were still though, sorry about that, we probably wont bottle still any more we all like it bubbly better too.
"Now onto the porter, and it is super! Very light carb, but it works well here.
I had the P labeled porter so far. By F.O.A. do you mean fruitcake cider?"
Thank you very much, I am very proud of that porter. Which one did you try?
Also What did you think of the Fruitcake Old Ale? I am doing it again this year and may or may not make changes to it.
Had it for lunch, and it reminded me of a dark German Ale I had whilst in Germany. Wasn't what I had expected when I started pouring it out, good. Could perhaps use more of a barley note, imo.Also What did you think of the Fruitcake Old Ale? I am doing it again this year and may or may not make changes to it.
Sorry for late response, been under the weather. Glad you enjoyed it. I used cascade, Citra, and Mosaic.@TBC , I still have most of your stuff, I did have your neipa the other day, I thought it was pretty good, I forget but did you mention mosaic hops in this one? I don't like IPA but some of these NEIPA's are pretty good, that said I probably am not a very good judge of said brew, still a little bitter for me but I liked it.
Somewhere around 18% or so. I have a thread about what I did to make it. https://www.homebrewtalk.com/forum/threads/super-cyser.591599/
Okay that makes sense! The alcohol surely punches you in the face but not unbearably so. I'd still like a bit of effervescence, but I suppose I'd be greedySomewhere around 18% or so. I have a thread about what I did to make it. https://www.homebrewtalk.com/forum/threads/super-cyser.591599/
