The Lost Batch

January 7, 2008 at 12:13 am Leave a comment


This was my first batch of beer and turned out ok. That is all you can expect from a purely extract beer though.

Date: 09/2007
Size: 5 Gallons

Recipe:

  • 7lbs Liquid Amber Malt Extract
  • 1/2 oz Cascade hops
  • Filtered water to make 5 gallons
  • Dried Ale Yeast

Method:

  • I boiled 2 1/2 gallons of wort in two separate pots (a two gallon and one gallon pot) for 30 minutes. I believe the hops were added at the beginning of the boil.
  • The wort was then added to the remaining water and cooled in an ice bath to 80° where yeast was pitched.
  • OG was measured at 1.052.
  • I did not take any other notes on this brew.

Tasting notes:

  • The brew did not ferment enough, or perhaps it was just not very good. Either way, it tasted too thick, too sugary.
  • It did mellow with age however and tasted better a month later.
