    I think its all about the starter. Have you tried it again yet?

    • Hey Mike – no I haven’t re-brewed it. If I were to do it again, I’d probably do two vials in a 1700 ml 1.040 starter 36 hrs. prior to pitch instead of using just one vial. I’ve been doing that a lot lately and like the results. What’s an extra $6.00 anyway? On the plus side, this beer has attenuated down to 1.025 now and though it is still probably the sweetest beer I’ve made (save for one messed up DIPA, my 3rd batch ever), it still tastes pretty close to style. I’d probably ease up on boiling a portion of the wort though, as I think that got it a little too thick and maybe a little too carmelly if that’s possible… The yeast did their job with what I gave them though. I’ve set aside at least a third of this batch to age for another year or two to see what happens in time. Have you brewed a scotch ale?
