Brew #2  -  MRB - 1776 Ale

Finally... a success! After losing to my first brew batch - MRB's American Ale, I've got a winner. At least, to me it is! Not quite as carbonated as I'd like, and lacking in sustainable head, it's as sweet as I could have asked for. No sourness. No unpleasant aftertaste. Just a nice, sweet Ale. I can do this.

Congrats! My first two batches were awful, so you're off to a better start!

I should have got a pic of straight through the glass. It's a clear as a clean window. Not that I would mind some haze, but this one is super clear. Also, I up-ended the bottle when finishing it, without thinking. Very few crumbs!

 

I will be proud to offer this beer to my visiting friends. Good stuff.

Woohoo, congrat's!  It's such a great feeling making that batch that makes you think "I CAN brew damned good beer in my kitchen."

CORRECTION: I reported my ABV as 4.2. That was MRB's expected percentage. My batch has an ABV of 4.0, which I am more than happy with.

 

Next Up: Voodoo, probably with white cane sugar as opposed to brown.
