Taste Notes

Had a blind taste test vs. Pliny the Elder on 2/14/2013. Pliny the Elder was 18 days aged since bottling according to the date on the bottle and the clone was kegged 10 days earlier. (8 days fresher) 11 of 14 taste testers choose Pliny the Step Child (Elder clone) as tasting better. I was one of the three that choose Pliny the Elder as the better beer. Color of this clone is slightly darker but very close. As published on beersmith.com

Brewing Notes

Pitch approximately 100 Billion Cells over recommended by BeerSmith. 347.5 billion recommended, 450 Billion+/- pitched (calculated via http://www.brewersfriend.com/yeast-pitch-rate-and-starter-calculator/) Pitched yeast into 60-degree wart. Added 1 oz. each of Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus. Fermented for 4 days (gravity at 1.038) then racked on top of 1 oz. each of Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus. Fermented for 10 days (gravity at 1.015) then kegged with approximately 0.3 oz. each of Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus in three 3” stainless steal tea balls.
