Notes

Actual OG 1.034. Fermentation not started nearly 24 hours later. Huge amount of sludge on top of beer.

22/01/2012 – Bottled into PET using 55g light spraymalt. FG: 1.010

17/02/2012 – First taste. Promising, but not ready to drink. Bit of astringency from yeast bite I think. Very light bodied, but nice malt flavour still coming through. Will give it another 4 weeks before tasting again.

17/03/2012 – Second taste
