5 weeks in primary. 2 weeks in bottle. 1 week in fridge.

Tasting Notes:

I think the 5 weeks in the primary made a big difference. It was delicious. Every bottle I gave out was gone before I could pop another. The only issue was carbonation. I think I slightly under-carbed and there wasn’t a significant head on the beer. The picture above is the last of the bunch which I suspect I didn’t mix and/or add enough carbonating sugar.
