Never one to leave well enough alone, I decided to try my latest my latest brew. It has only been in the bottle for five days. Not much, especially for a beer that was bottled without priming. However, I was pleasantly surprised.
First off, the beer poured crystal clear. The aroma is an enticing biscuit/malt. The flavor is excellent. It matches the best of any brewpub I have ever tasted. Malt and bitterness are in perfect balance with a pleasant earthy aftertaste. Believe it or not, the carbonation was pretty good for only five days with no primer. I would like to see more carbonation, but that will come with time.
In spite of using a new yeast and base malt, it looks I got things right this time!
