I brewed this in an Anvil Foundry / brew in a bag. I did add some roasted pumpkin seeds added to the mash from Halloween Jack-o-Lanterns and used a Kveik yeast. I pitched at about 90F and let it settle to room temp. I got just a tick under the expected gravity but also had north of 6 gallons of beer. It seems I did not boil off as much as expected. ABV was barely impacted. I just kegged it and sampled, and itís quite good. Just enough malty taste and character, great balance. Thereís no half star option here, but Iíd give it a solid 4.4 out of 5.0 if possible.
Just tapped keg. Very smooth, creamy with caramel notes. Really enjoyable.
I am new to home brewing and have wanted to do this for a while. I thought go big or don't go at all. So started with all-grain. I am on good well water. After cleaning all my brewing stuff I would need, started at 10am on my mash. The only issue I saw was the grain was about 10 to 15 % uncrushed (whole grains). I did not now if that was OK or not, just went with it. Maybe that is why my starting gravity was a little low? By 3pm I had my first beer in the fermenter. After about 12 hour the air lock was bubbling like crazy. Had to clean the air lock a few times. After 2 weeks it was ready to bottle. I want to taste it before I put in the bottles. So I put some in a little pitcher I have and put it in the freezer to get it cold. It tasted OK, a little bitter hop bite. But knew it was a flat beer. So bottled any way. Last night (Tuesday) I put a few in the refrigerator to get cold so could try one carbonated . I think it went well for my first home brew. I am having one now, much better now it has been in the bottles for 1 week, with some age it will only get better. I will be getting a grain grinder though. Cheers.
