electric cooler ferm chamber broke, Fermented at 75, not too bad tasting anyway!
——————————-
20psi at 34f for 56 hours. Perfect.

1st pour
Darker than I would prefer. Barely too bitter. Go back to chocolate malt or 100% Vienna next time.

2nd day of drinking
great winter beer! If it had pumpkin spices it would probably be a great pumpkin porter.
