FG Update, Started Bottling

Category: Bob's Brown Ale — Josh @ 10:21 pm

I started bottling tonight. FG is 1.012 @ 72F. 1.013 corrected. 3.7%. 56 bottles total. This style is more of an an American brown than an American amber. The Cascade hops flavor really shines through. Very citrus like. Despite this, it tastes like it is missing something.

Bubbling along

The beer is bubbling away still. Foam is no longer being pushed out of the blow off tube, and the krausen has fallen. I will likely put the airlock on today.

Fermentation Rocking

Fermentation seems to have peaked, and is starting to subside. Sanitizing solution in catch bucket is brown. About a quart of beer was forced out of the BOT. Will remove BOT and install airlock soon.
