Notes

Lost some wort druing refilling into fermentation keg. Wort left approx. 13 litres.
Left fementor on balcony @ approx 0°C for 15 hours. Wort temp :9°C
Added yeast. Bubbling for approx 1,5 days after 1 day. left fermenting for only 5 days.
Dry hopping @ 1st and last Day with ca 2 x 10 grams ofAmarillo and Mt Hood.
Before bottling, boiled around 80 grams of caramel syrup with a cup of water and 10 grams of bourbon vanilla extract.
Slight aeration during bottling.
Flavor: ok. Slight to medium diacetyl smell.
foam doesnt stay very long. Hoppy and bitter, almost no caramel/vanilla arome. But drinkable and funilly enjoyable.
