12/12/2017 – Took gravity reading and it’s alarmingly high at 1.014. I think the OG was slightly over the predicted 1.050, but it’s still a high finisher. I’m hoping the yeast didn’t
just flocc out with the cold weather. I’d moved it into a warm room to finish for the last week or so, so I’m surprised to see it finish so high. The gravity hasn’t changed in a week though, so I’m going to bottle it. But I’ll have to hold off on my plan to add brett to a portion of the bottles. There’s too much residual fermentables to do that now and
it’s not worth the risk of exploding bottles. On a positive note, it doesn’t taste under attenuated at all, and the flavour is fantastic. There’s a lovely toasty flavour in it, and I’m not sure if it’s from the small percentage of Munich malt, or from the Weyermann pilsner malt. Also, the grapefruit flavour is really prominent and very tasty. Will bottle
this soon.
