Notes

Brew Date Wednesday August 29th

This was Brewed in all ways the same as the Irish Red i. Except
Finished with 1/2# DME Plus 1/4# Honey
I think the wet yeast applied was to much for 3 Gal. Fermentation was intense, and stopper blew. Crud created a seal.
hoping that the beer was not contaminated, replace with a clean and sanitized stopper. Fermentation continued at a brisk pace.
Planning on Racking; Saturday September 8th ( 4 days before prescribed)
Planned Bottling date;September 26th
Taste Test:TBD
