Even my friends from England loved this one! A true test of this beer. Will make it again.


Just started fermenting

I brewed this about 20 hours ago. I got an OG of 1.07 which seemed strange, so I added a little more water to bring it to 1.06. I hope I didn't mess it up. I also had a dead batch of White Labs yeast (never order it online). I pitched some other yeast (not what the recipe calls for, so we'll see) and it started fermenting. I hope it works out and didn't get contaminated while I was messing with it.
