Elmer, that looks really good. I love all three of those hops you used (especially the chinook for bittering). Leave a six pack or so for at least a year and you'll thank me for it later, I've done a similar batch and it really evolved over the year as it aged. I try and make them in January so I can ring in the next new year with a few. Unfortunately I didn't this year. :slp

I intended on making a small batch and aging 1/2 until the end of the year and the rest for the year after.

I also intended to have 11% abv , however my efficiency was lousy and will end up with 8%, hopefully .

Have you sampled a bottle yet? How's it coming along?


Wish for a touch more carbonation.

So far- very big bitterness, touch of sweetness.
Not a bad big beer.
Can't wait to sample in the cold weather.
Can't wait to sample in a year.

Elmer? Try one lately? It's getting colder, you can spare a bottle...How's the carbonation, I'm assuming a bit better.

IMG_0004.JPG a year later, it has smoothed out.
Time has allowed to its thinness to show through. Next time will add some body.
Still very drinkable.
