Beer Style: Old Ale (19A)
Recipe Type: all-grain
Yield: 4 US gallons
I gave it a vertical pour and got a good head. The aftertaste was really nice. Hints of coffee/licorice.
Excellent full bodied dark ale.
The use of the Gervin yeast helps form a solid base when bottle conditioning, allowing a carefull full pour.
Brought 16l water to 76C, added malt reducing to 66C
standard 1 hour mash with batch sparge
standard 1 hour boil with hop additions as above
Cooled with a copper coil cooler and of course
a Gervin GV12 High Quality Ale Yeast added at 24C.
75g priming sugar added at a final racking before bottling.
