Notes:

Week 3 the beer lost some of its sweetness. Priming sugar was why it had a sweet note. Easy drinking beer.

Notes:

Taste tested after 2 weeks in the fermenter then bolted for 5 days. Very young. Has a honey nose. Very smooth on the palate for a young beer. Happy with the results so far.

OriginbrewerDoes this recipe call for 2 oz of hops or 4?

Saturday-brewerI made this beer with 2 ounces of hops. I have corrected my mistake. Thanks for pointing it out.

OriginbrewerThank man, would you add more or did it turn out right?

Saturday-brewerIt turned out fine but I wish it had more hop aroma. I will be tweaking the recipe and may add the finishing hops at flame out instead of a 15 min boil. The carapills worked well for excellent head retention.
