Beer, home brewed beer

It carbonated just fine. Flavor is a bit muted. Alcohol content is definitely there. Practically no sediment. A bit of an astringent note as well. Probably over extracted from the grain bag. Figured out during the wort cooling phase that my thermometer was no longer working properly. 

Maybe more time will cause it to develop further.


  1. Keep up the good work. The astringent taste maybe the yeast or the hops. Take notes and keep experimenting with your recipes. I need to get back to brewing myself. Gary

    1. Plan on it. Took plenty of notes and pictures. I have a double IPA ingredients kit on deck.

      I am also now outfitted with a shiny new thermometer and a wort chiller to help speed the transfer to the fermenter. I think I was a bit warm when I pitched the yeast.
