Sweet Failure

Even though I mainly brew beer to try to salvage what’s left of my engineering mind, I also just like beer. I worked hard for the last batch I brewed, but I wasn’t too hopeful it would turn out well. It’s nice when things turn out better than planned.  My first (technically) partial mash came out quite tasty. The fresh wort definitely contributes complexity. More importantly, the nutty flavor that pervades the liquid extract sold at my local brew store is absent. And at 8.1%, it does the trick.

The Tigers are playing Florida. Geaux!
