Old Ale


My best batch of the winter, highly recommended.

I drank the last bottle on June 6 (brewed Jan. 25). It was still in great shape: spicy on the nose and `creamy' and full-bodied in the mouth.

Try this mild ale malt stuff....it's really good!

The Cascade hops were fresh and very aromatic, from the fall '91 harvest. Alpha acid was about 5%; alas I didn't write it down. I used Edme yeast, although I doubt if I would ever again usedried yeast on a beer like this (or any beer?). Fortunately, I got no infections.
