So, I have finally joined the all-grain family and my first brew is finally carbonated. I go to take my first and long awaited taste and it is…okay. The initial taste is pretty good but then across the back of my tongue there is an overpowering bitter coffee taste. It looks good and has a pleasant nose but damn that aftertaste. Any help on what I did wrong?
Brown Ale - 1.040 down to 1.004. maris otter, biscuit, and 1 oz of dark. 3 oz of Goldings at different intervals. I used dry ale yeast s-04. 155 conversion and it held for 60 min. sparge 168. 1 hour boil. Anything would help and btw great website…glad to be a part of it!
