My hydrometer isn't totally accurate, but the OG is waaay under the target. Not sure what might have happened. Maybe it was a stuck fermentation that I couldn't even restart with the addition of some more yeast.For the oak, I grabbed a couple pieces of red oak that's been dead for over a year -- it was dried out and seemed the right consistency. I removed the bark, torched it all over, then baked it at 250F for about 3 hours, and soaked it in rye whiskey for a few days. I stuck the wood (not ...
Trying to keep it fermenting 64-68F, with the bucket inside an ice bucket filled with cool water. Ambient temp is 73-75, so it's tough. Bottled after only a week, but the gravity was right on the money. Tasted when bottling, and it was a darker flavor than I was expecting. The caramel malts in the extracts really come through.
Irish Moss added in last 15 minutes of boil. Cocoa Powder (Hershey's Special Dark) added in last 10 minutes of boil.
During bottling: smelled strongly of dark cherries and tasted fairly sweet. The gravity reading was a little higher than expected, so it's possible that had something to do with it. Regardless, it shouldn't cause much of a problem. 4 days after bottling: No bottle bombs... yet.
Boiled over & lost some wort. Stopper popped out of the carboy after a day of fermentation -- I guess the stopper wasn't a perfect fit.
