Really like this
It’s been about 3.5 weeks since brew day.
This is the first brew I’ve had a fermentation chamber for and it paid off. On brew day, the original gravity came in at 1.064. I left it in the primary for 2 weeks at 74 degrees and got the final gravity down to 1.002 (8.14% ABV). After two weeks on primary, I kegged it at 41 degrees. It’s been 1.5 weeks since I kegged and the flavors are melding together nicely. You can taste the lemon in it but with more time in the keg, it will get better. I give this 4 stars because the extra oomf of flavor you expect is lacking, but barely. Maybe a few more lemon drop hops at flameout would help.
This is the worst recipe I have ever bought! I do not recommend! Do not buy this!
The alcohol taste is overwhelming. The lemondrop hops are barely noticeable with the alcohol overwhelming the flavor. OG was 1.060 and FG was 1.002 which comes out to 7.61%. I'd say there was too much corn sugar added per recipe. It's drinkable but wouldn't buy it again.
I used Wyeast 3711 and ended up with a FG of 1.001. I didn't expect that. The beer still tastes ok, just kegged it and waiting for it to carb. I think I expected more of a lemon-bomb from all of the lemondrop hops, but it's very low-key. Should end up being a pretty good beer. I calculated my ABV at around 7.1%
