Real pale beer. Very clear already. Might not even need the gelatin. FG right at planned 1.009. Harvested some yeast for my next lager. Flavor very light and crisp. Thin as well.

I took a sample to see how it is progressing. Lots of pressure built up which makes me think maybe there was some more fermentation, but maybe not. Pour was very cloudy. The color is more pale than I think of DPA. The flavor and aroma is very good. I think this will be great once it clarifies. I think after I chill it, I'll add some gelatin. 6/14/2022 12:09:26 PM3579#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=199#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: on Jethro Bud Nelson Merican Lite Lagerhttp://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=202#comment3578Jethro Bud Nelson Merican Lite Lager Fermentation was going by the afternoon the day after brew day.

The color is just a bit different. It might just be that the Voss beer has had about a week more to clarify. Flavor is close, but I was able to identify the difference in a "blind" triangle test. The Voss has a bit more lemon ester, and comes across as slightly more bitter. I thought I also detected a touch of sulfur in the aroma. Both are nice beers, but I think I prefer the English Ale. 4/8/2022 3:43:49 PM3538#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=200#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: on McShepardSons Irish Ale (double batch)http://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=200#comment3537McShepardSons Irish Ale (double batch) Lovely beer.

Color is perfect for a red beer. Just a touch of haze. Pretty clear for the first pour. Aroma has a hint of the lemon pith that I get with the Voss yeast, but not really getting it in the flavor. A little floral and woody. Nice balance. Tiny bit of roast helps dry out the finish. Nice nutty malt flavor. Really like this beer. 3/27/2022 2:30:40 PM3533#/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=200#commentshttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icohttp://www.sheppybrew.com/images/beer.icoComment: on McShepardSons Irish Ale (double batch)http://www.sheppybrew.com/recipes/recipe.aspx?id=200#comment3532McShepardSons Irish Ale (double batch) Kegged the Kveik Voss batch. 1.012 FG. I'm a little surprised it didn't finish lower, but it tastes as I would expect it. Not a lot of residual sweetness, and actually has a fairly dry finish. Maybe a little lemon peal ester. My measured ABV is 4.1% and the Attenuation is 71%. Note the Tilt in the English Ale batch says 1.008 at 67. Usually, I can add 5 to 7 points to my FG on these, so it should be an even lower ABV beer.

Next time I brew this, I can increase the brew house efficiency. Up at 5:30. Pretty much done with clean up before 10am.
