    spicy brunette update

    mate, I had my first one 3 weeks in the bottle and thought 'nah' tried the 2nd one yesterday at near 6 weeks in bottle and its really mellowed out. Cinnamon undertone is not as overpowering, and I have just opened another one and drinking the hooer now. I think at the 3 month mark this could be a more enjoyable drink than I first thought.

    spicy brunette update

    So as a 'training wheels' intro to something different, I put down a spicy brunette. After 3 weeks I tried one and was not overly impressed, a very strange flavour but not a bitter as I expected. Tried again today at 6 weeks and its settled down ok and was a lot more mellow than the first bottle. Will wait 2 more weeks and try again. Its gone from a 'yeah, nah' to a 'hmmm, ok' in 3 weeks lol. Let you know WW.

    finishing hops

    your right LabRat, I put the 2 finishing hops in, both 12.5 gm, and in the sampling stage could detect neither aroma or change in taste. maybe in the bottle it may improve. thanks for the valuable tip.

    finishing hops

    ok, now I'm confused....again or further, not sure yet. I am brewing my first attempt at other than a k n k beer. The kit came with Morgans Amarillo and Cascade finishing hops satchels. The recipe that came with the pack says on day 4 to put the tea bags in the fermentor and leave till bottling. All seemed simple. Today at the LHBS, which isn't so local, the guy said 'you have to boil the hops for 30 to 40 minutes before putting them in you fv'. This has confused hell out of me. The pack says to put bag in a cup of boiling water and put fluid and bag into fv, the instructions says put the bags only in on day 4, and lbhs dude says boil hops first. As Im at day 2 of brewing, can someone set me straight on this. I still plan to just throw the bags in as instructions say, but woujld appreciate some direction by you gurus. thanks ww.
