Notes

I just threw a bunch of shit together and didn't know what to expect. I guess i was going for a hoppy english style ale.

It was like 80-90 degrees in my apartment at times cause it was fermenting in august/september.

Didn't filter it at all. Let it ferment for for 20 days then bottle conditioned for 30.

I give it a solid 2 stars

its got a musty woodsy unpleasant bitterness to it.
