This post is a month late, I know. But it is also kind of depressing to write as this is my first failed batch of beer. Here’s what happened: First of all the yeast behaved strangely indeed (as described here), and then I got an enourmos amount of gunk and compared to the small batch size I had problems getting a clear beer into the bottles: there was always a bit of dirt following in. And then… Something must have gone wrong: the beer went sour and undrinkable. Infection? Possibly. Damn shame.
But not to cry! Autumn is here, which means I just had an opportunity to try it again, only this time with fresh hops! That report will be in a following post. Up and onwards!
