14/05/2017 – Brew Day

08/06/2017 – A bit longer in the fermenter than intended, but should be better for it. Bottled to 2.3 vol into a mixture of 500ml and 750ml bottles. Nice light amber colour and great toasty aroma. I was originally planning on saving the yeast for another brew, but I’m keen to get cracking on some Belgian beers, so I chucked it.

20/06/2017 – Opened a bottle for a cheeky taste. Even though it really is too early for opening, I was disappointed at how estery and immature it tastes. I’m wondering if it would be better to condition indoors or outdoors to speed things up a bit.
