Been doing this for awhile and me and my brewbuddy were like damn. Like I said, we were expecting something different, but wow she was really dark like a dark ale. We are calling it a second tier beer to see what it tastes like. I guess I didnt explain myself well earlier in my posts. After we were done brewing and filling the blichman fermentor, we decided to see if we could capture anymore wort and how much we were actually losing in the mash when we were done. Come to find out it was 5 gallons and some change, but not enough to fill up the other fermentor so we used the carboy. Man was she dark dark dark, darker than when I used to brew with carboys all the time. The OG on the original receipe was 1072 and FG was 1022 with California Ale Yeast. The simcoe hops really brought out the taste that I was looking for and man o man she smells good. Just curious about the second tier we have in the carboy, will know in about two weeks when we put that puppy in a keg.
