If you have been following along I recently brewed another Golden Wheat Red IPA – with a twist! More hops!
I transferred the beer from the primary fermenter into the secondary while adding an ounce of Centennial hops – dry hopping the beer. As is my habit, I pull a sample and checked the gravity and yes, the taste. The gravity is close to the expected final gravity, that is a good thing. The taste…..I have to pat myself on the back….if the final product comes close to the sample it will be an outstanding beer!!!!!
I would love to have posted on the day of the transfer but work was calling and I had to head off to Paris for a few days. Rough duty but someone has to do the dirty work. Now the beer sits for 5 days or so at 64 degrees F and then I will crash it to 34 F to clear it up and drop the sediment to the bottom. I will keg 6 Liters into one of my minikegs and bottle the rest. Now the wait….first taste of the beer will be at the end of January for for the Super Bowl.
Enjoy a night shot of the Eiffel tower from my recent trip.
