I just tasted my 2nd extract brew that was in primary for 2 weeks, secondary for 4 weeks and bottled for 2 weeks - the Dry Irish Stout - and I love it.
I plan to make more very soon.
Only thing I would change if possible is maybe strengthening the taste. Not really concerned too much about the abv, but I feel that if it tasted a little stronger, I could probably live on the stuff.
I was wondering if its as simple as just not topping up the fermenter to the full 5 gallons? Or if maybe I should steep my grains for longer while keeping the pre-boil water at the correct temperature. Or buy extra grain? Or if I’m best not meddling till I know more about whats going on in the happy world of homebrew :?
Thanks as always for any info
