Bottling a Bells Expedition Stout clone. First taste, its gonna be AWESOME after bottle conditioning for a few months. Came out at 9.5%
Dang, I’ve not brewed in a little over year now. My brew buddy moved and I lost some motivation. Maybe it’s time to start up again.
Tried my first bottle of the Expedition Stout yesterday. It was very good but obviously needs more time in the bottle. It is still low on carbonation. And being a big stout it needs a lot more aging. I'm excited to think how good it be in 6 months. Now I need to try one of the Hopslam clones that we did. Those should be pretty good also, the last batch was excellent and received a lot praise from friends who tried it. And we still have a Dragons Milk stout clone to bottle. It's been in the fermenter for 3 weeks so far, 1 week with bourbon soaked toasted oak chips. Not sure what the next brew is going to be. Maybe a Christmas ale of some sort or possibly a Breakfast Stout clone.
