I kegged the JP Elevenses Ale on Saturday after a week in primary and two weeks in secondary (set to 10 PSI) and today was curious to see how it was coming. The reason I was testing it was because during the last few quarts of siphoning from the secondary into the keg I got some yeast in the keg. To my surprise it tasted absolutely delicious…yeast and all. I actually drank that first glass from the keg. IMO it needs about another week to age and fully carbonate but I’m really happy about the taste. I’m debating whether to dump in some gelatin? That first glass was slightly cloudy and I’m guessing it will clear up after the first 2-3 pints. It was very clear in the secondary. I use Irish moss in all my boils now and haven’t seen any problems.
I was wondering do you guys that keg automatically add gelatin to the keg or do you wait and see what the clarity looks like first?
I’m officially addicted to brewing Oh and my Oatmeal stout I posted on that was bland is tasting better every day…That stuff is awesome and almost as good as Sam Smiths.
I’m learning that the old adage “patience is a virtue” is certainly true when it comes to brewing!!!
