Ale to the victors
Well here is the first pour of "Ale to the Victors". It came out suprisingly well for the first batch. I can best describe it as a cross between Blue Moon and Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat. The first cup was a little bitter, which is common because there is always a small amount of sediment on the bottom of the keg. The 2nd glass was much better. I'll probably use a different type of hops on the second batch. Overall I would have to say that I was very pleased! Go Blue!!
Just to let everyone know, I will be pouring my first glass of "Ale to the Victors" tomorrow evening. The beer has been in the fermenter for almost 2 months and now it's in my kegerator and should be carbonated tomorrow. I'll be sure to post Pics and my opinion of the first batch! I can't wait!
Here is a picture of "Ale to the Victors" in the secondary fermenter. This will be ready to bottle in about 2 weeks. It will be ready to drink another 2 weeks after that. I can't wait!!!
Well the first batch of "Ale to the Victors" is in the fermenter. This recipe is a cream ale which includes actual flaked maize. My thoughts are to have a cream ale and a pale ale at the UConn game this year for people to sample and decide on a winner. I'm still looking for help on designing a label, if anyone is interested. Hope to see you all at the opener! Go Blue!!
