Notes

Ferment in primary for 7 days and transfer to secondary and let fermentation complete. Add Gelatin 3 days prior and cold crash in fridge to clear up beer.

The beer shows coffee brown with a creamy beige head. The nose is an interesting blend of malt and spicy hops leading on to a creamy, medium-bodied palate with a lot of malt, but the hops come in to balance it. The finish is the perfect blend of malt and hops.

This beer is mouthwatering with a hearty beef and vegetable soup.

Enjoy this one!
