Kegged my first Boston Red Ale (partial mash kit from Midwest) the OG was 1.040 and the FG today was 1.005. (at 62º) OG should have been 1.042 and FG at 1.010. The beer is nice and clear and tastes good.
I over-sparged with a bit more water than I should have but wanted to get all the wort out.
I did about a 6.5 gallon boil and when I put it in the primary it was about 5.5 gallons. The boil was excellent and the cold break was good. Dumped about 1.5 quarts of very runny trub after racking to secondary.
Sat in primary for 7 days and secondary for 12 days. Wondering if I should have kegged after 7 days in secondary like recipe suggests?
This will be a good beer for the neighborhood children at Christmas, think I’ll call it “Kinderbrau” :lol:
