- kegged 2018-6-22
Grains ready for milling
Brewday beer. This was the last pour of the Red Rye IPA
Floor manager Steve had a fight with the rug. Not sure who won that.
All Nugget hops. 34g at FWH and 60g for 5 min
Hello yeasties. This was split between the stout and amber
And away we go...
2018-6-21: cold crashing in the fridge on the solstice. I needed the Fermonster for an American Porter so the stout got a secondary.
FG ended up high for whatever reason. But we still got 6.3% ABV which is spot on for the style. After temp adjustment this worked out to 1.014. Not terrible but not as low as expected.
Into the keg
Quick nitro-style pour while carbonating. This is getting full carbonation and going on CO2.
Fully carbonated with keezer label
2018-8-12 Full pour. Love the mix of roasty malt and Nugget hops. Saving this as a standard American Stout and plan to do a bigger version as a 'Simperial Stout'
