- 3.7 / 5.03 ReviewsNow I tasted it!Still young in the keg but it is carbonated. First blush is a Belgian strong that has a unknown twist. As it mellows I am sure it will be a great beer that is drinkable by all. Mine came out to 7.5% ABV. I am not sure it fermented out all the way?September 16, 2016Another winner from NB.However, The review will be more accurate after I keg and taste it? Don't rush me!September 6, 2016
- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 4 answersWhen brewing the tea when should it be added to the fermentor?BEST ANSWER: I added my steeped and cooled Green Tea to beer after fermentation was subsided (which was about 10 days). Then I kegged my beer. Most of the green tea settled out nicely on bottom on keg. You had to really "dig deep" to notice the green tea......it ends up being a subtle flavor.
Hope this was some hell......journey on beer friendGreg O: I haven't tried brewing this kit. But, no matter how potent the tea aroma and smell are, wouldn't the 5 gallons of beer dilute it?BEST ANSWER: Greg,
Thank you for contacting us. The green tea aroma is subdued in the final product.
