I had one last bottle of the Scottish tucked away in the fridge fom the same batch, that I just finished crushing.  I think I'm overly paranoid about oxidation with the beergun since it was my first time using it.  So far, I've not picked up any oxidation character at all.  Again, recommend letting that bottle warm up a bit prior to pouring.  The Wild Ale is really the same way, both are better at cellar temps 50 to 55.  I store them both colder and just let the bottles sit a bit before opening.

Scottish:  really rich malt nose and taste that has pleasantly dry smooth finish. Deep reddish brown that's very clear. Thin foam on pour that fades quickly.  Malt Opened up as it warmed and I'm not sensing any oxidation JT.

Haven't made one of these and rarely drink them. This is really nice and makes me think about brewing one this fall winter.

Man, I'll stop brewing to take a trip to Europe any day !  I see a beer trip to Germany and Belgium in my future, among others.

wont be there this time.....sadly!   my wife is teacher on the euro-trip and will be there June 29th and then we will meet her Jul 11th in Rome.  make our way to Venice for July 15th departure on 11 day Mediterranean cruise ...Greece, Croatia, and Montenegro.  Not beer destinations but wine & food will be exceptional.

JT- getting after those last two beers of yours next two nights. Scottish heavy and American wild ale- not very familiar with either but looking forward to trying them out.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Current thoughts on hefe strains
« on: June 07, 2016, 03:12:54 PM »
like  most strains of hefe...wlp300 needs the right temp management for perfect hefe. low 60's then hold 64-65ish and then let it ride at room temp 68ish to finish last couple points and to clean up.

but the yeast is just part of the equation...lots in the process to experiment with.
