The Brown One

The Brown One was really good, really good. My buddy Bobby and my Dad, both from out of state got to visit and try some. They mentioned it was really good. It was malty and had that tasty brown(coffee) taste to it.

I'm usually too drunk to write this blog some I'm just going to post these videos and tell you that this beer was amazing. It might take the crown of brown amoungst the bue beers!



The Brew

  • Style

    Brown Ale

    Tasting Brown.

    ?

    Taking the gravity before the boil, to make sure the boil went well.
  • Original Gravity

    1.046

    The Original Gravity is the specific gravity measured before fermentation. Gravity is the ratio of the density of a sample to the density of water. Basically sugar vs water. OG - FG = ABV
  • Final Gravity

    1.014

    The Final Gravity is the specific gravity measured at the completion of fermentation. Basically sugar vs water. OG - FG = ABV
  • ABV

    4.2%

    Alcohole By Volume. How much alcohol is in the beer, the higher the drunker you get! This one the math and gravities were a little off.
  • Munich Malt (9.0 SRM)

    8lbs

    Malty-sweet flavor characteristic and adds a reddish amber color to the beer. Does not contribute signficantly to body or head retention. Use for: Bock, Porter, Marzen, Oktoberfest beers
  • Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM)

    8oz

    Significantly increases foam/head retention and body of the beer. Also sold under the names "Dextrine" and "Cara - Foam"

    Safale American

    These microscopic fungi are the mojo in the juice when it comes to alcohole. They consume sugar, then piss carbonation and shit alchole, then reproduce and do it again.
  • Corn Sugar

    4oz

    Priming sugar, used finish off the fermination. It's used to self carbonate the beer during bottling.
  • IBU

    I would say about 30.

    International Bittering Units. The measurement of bitterness of the beer ranging from 0 to 100, where 100 is super hoppy.
