Final Review

The first few bottles weren't very good but it got better after a few weeks. Next time need to let this sit a little longer.

Notes From March 23, 2014 (Brewing)

Gravity Reading: 1.060

It's been a lot time since I brewed and felt pretty rusty today. First time using my Therminator as well. Overall it went pretty well. I did forget the last oz of Chinook hops so there won't be much aroma. Size and gravity came up a little short but I think that happened last time as well. Should still be a tasty beer.

Notes From April 20, 2014 (Bottling/Kegging)

Gravity Reading: [Not given]

Bottled a week late because I was away last weekend. No gravity reading because K broke it after brewing this batch. Just under 5 gals. Tasted a little bit but wasn't impressed. So far this is shaping up to be the worst beer I've ever made.
