Final Review

I don't remember this beer

Notes From Nov. 13, 2011 (Brewing)

Gravity Reading: 1.058

I started the boil with 6.5 gallons of wort with a gravity of 1.050 and I ended with 5 gallons in the fermentor with a gravity of 1.058. I calculated a 75% brewhouse efficiency for my mash/sparge.

Notes From Nov. 27, 2011 (Bottling/Kegging)

Gravity Reading: 1.011

I moved it to my keg today and tasted an uncarbonated sample. The color was what I wanted, but it was more bitter than I expected. Hopefully, it will mellow a bit when carbonated, cooled and aged for another week.
