So I dove into the craze and brewed two batches. Both with Conan. Batch# 3 will be with 1318. The latest was bottled 12 days ago and opened one yesterday. It's more of a non malty amber ale than a NE IPA. Taste wise it is pretty good, could use more hop aroma/flavor but overall I'm satisfied except for the color. Oxygenation!!! I do not have a keg setup. I use a Sterile Siphon Starter to transfer from carboy to bottling bucket and use a spring loaded bottling wand to bottle. Once the bottles are filled, they are capped immediately. Don't want to spend the bucks for a beer gun and co2 set up. Is there any other way to avoid oxygenation with these types of beers? Why is this style susceptible to oxygenation more so than other styles like APA's? For now I need to make due with what I have as I do have plans to get a kegerator next year.
