DayEntry
0Used wheat instead of light DME by mistake, so may turn out with more of a dunkel. Although all leaf hops, lots of sediment. Draining to fermenter got clogged so really stirred it up and let it all go to fermenter. Very full so hoping much will blow off in the next few days.
1Fermentation going well, temp at high side, will see how much blows off.
15Bottling day, got nearly 20l. Light and promising. Tinge of tartness on the very periphery? Good I didn't wait.
116The wheat dme turned this in to a dunkle. Went down very well with better half.
