Notes

Chop raisins and heat to 162 degrees for 30 seconds. Put in grain sock and add to mash with 20 minutes left.

Ferment for 7 days, transfer to secondary until fermentation stops. Add Gelatin (optional) and cold crash for 3 days prior to bottling.

Bottle and condition at room temp for 21 days. Chill 3 days...enjoy.

This is a complex beer full of hop nose, raisin and molasses notes on the nose and palate. Great fall beer with Irish Stew...
