Attempt #2

This time I’m using the Coopers English Bitter kit and added some hops and amber malt extract into the mix. It’s been fermenting away for a few days now and I just took the first final gravity reading. It’s @ 1.010 from 1.050 (original gravity). After applying the simple ABV formula of (OG – FG) / 7.46 + .5… this brew is going to be 5.9%! Now that’s more like it. I’m taking another FG reading tomorrow to make sure it’s done fermenting, and then it’s time to bottle. I’m really looking forward to this one. I do believe that this brew will destroy my previous attempt. Expect a review in a few weeks.

P.S. WTF? (see below)

  1. Tom: Brutal. Are you going to bring this mis-label to the attention of the brewery somehow?

  2. How is this beer coming along? Got any left?

    ps. La Trappe is setting a bad precedent. What if Westmalle decided to change their name for fun… Bunch of bad dudes at Konings..
