We’ll see about that… I’ll probably sample it after a week or so in the bottles. I’ll report back on the glory, for sure.
Here’s a shot of the 46th bottle – I’ve indicated the final bottle of this session with a daub of black paint. I charged this last bottle – and the last bottle from my previous brew – with a bit of the gunk from the dregs of the carboy. Gotta bite those hops!
