- Brewed 9 February 2008. OG 1.049, 66% efficiency. Would
have bee better, but I lost a lot of volume in a boilover, and made
up with water, diluting things. Still, only 3 gravity points off
predicted, so not bad.
- Bottled 30 June 2008. FG 1.011, 5% alcohol v/v. All things
considered, this tastes like one of the best things I've ever brewed.
I will definitely have to do this one again for myself.
