Just cracked one of these open. Bottled about 3 - 4 weeks ago. Seems to be pretty ok.
Actually i very happy with it. It pours a nice head and holds it a while. While I'm no tasting expert I cant taste any off flavours like vegemitey banana type stuff etc.
But like i say im no expert. I put on a Coops real ale one week after this. Did that with a brew booster. Had to taste that yesterday. This has much more body. the other is a bit thin compard to this. I have been worried coz the weather has been so hot that it may go a bit off or whatever. I store in a dark place but its got no temp control.
Reckon I will do something like this again.
anyway thats my experience with this method so far
Coz i'm new to this i havent been sure about how things would turn out. With fermenting i can ususally keep the temp down even thogh its a struggle. But after I bottle i've got no where to store where it is constantly cool. I dont have a keg system so i'm at the mercy of the weather. My house gets stinking hot everywhere.
none of it has gone off so far so thats ok. thats what i'm talking about.
ive been in the shed when the outside temp is 35 or so and its over 40 in there.
I wasnt sure how the ber would react to temps like this. but so far so good.
