The Difference Gravity Makes
« on: June 24, 2015, 12:22:24 AM »
I've made two different iterations of Nearly Nirvana Pale Ale recently (thanks Crispy!) and have been blown away at the difference in the taste between them.

The first batch only had 3 ounces of hops, the second had 2 additional ounces (one being dry hops). The grain bill was the same and my mash temp was a degree higher not the second.

Beer 1, OG (1.050) and FG (1.006)

Beer 2, OG (1.054) and FG (1.010)

Same ABV between them, but beer 2 tastes so much more balanced than number 1. Yea, science!

I like the sweeter beers. May be just me. Crazy how one degree made such a difference.

My beers are still a bit random on what temp I will sit at. Not sure I could get mine down to a clear 1 degree difference.
