Notes

=== 12-15-2013 ===

  • Bumped all hop additions down to .4oz from .5oz since they're a little high alpha. So, from 48ibu to 40 which is in the style range.
  • Doh. Added the 60min Fuggles at 30min instead. No biggy. Bumped up the 15min addition to 1.2oz to get the IBU's back up.
  • Doh. Didn't add the pepper in last 5 min. Instead, I grabbed a cup of wort and made a tea with it and added it into the cooling wort. Don't drink and brew, friends.
  • OG: 1.064 (refracto). So, 72% BHE.
  • 12-28-2013 FG: 1.01 (hydro) Hydro taste: Good look & aroma. Tastes like it has a bit too much bittering hops. Since I messed up the hop addition on this batch, maybe I'll brew it as is one more time. If it tastes too bitter next batch, remove the 60 min Fuggles addition and move the 30 min addition to 15 min. Do NOT increase the black pepper addition no matter what.
  • 2-15-14 As this one aged, the black pepper becamed more and more pronounced.
