Second time around for the Clansman. Although the last batch was deemed by one friend the best I’ve ever made, I made some modifications for this go ’round.
Racked to primary and took OG reading. Smells delicious (November 11, 2006).
Racked to secondary and took a gravity reading (November 16, 2006).
Racked to keg, took FG reading, pressurized to clear headspace, and placed in refrigerator to age. The beer should be ready to tap by Christmas Eve (November 20, 2006).
Tapped on Christmas Eve. Color is a light copper and the taste is malty, slightly sweet, with a finish that is not as dry as the last batch. Hop aroma is evident, but subdued (January 2, 2007).
