28/03/2016 - brew day
01/04/2016 - no more airlock activity after 4 days of fermentation. waiting some time for yeast to clean up before cold crashing and kegging...
5/04/2016 - cold crashing at 0 celcius
13/04/2016 - kegging day. The beer tastes very good even before carbonation. Moving the keg to condition at 0 celsius.
24/04/2016 - sampled the beer, it's good but a bit hazy. might try gelatin to clear it up in the serving keg.
