We’ve covered brewing, fermenting, and dry-hopping this beer. We just need to look at few pictures of the tail end of this tale, cover some last steps, and unveil the name this brew will have for our annual Septembeerfest celebration.
After the addition of the fresh hops, leaf hops and pellet hops to the beer, I swirled it around everyday and let it sit in the glass carboy for 9 days. During this time, a lot of the pellet hop material sank to the bottom, and most of the fresh and leaf hops stayed at the top.
My intention all along was to keg this brew and serve it at our Septembeerfest celebration on the 17th. As well at this one ended up turning out, I think it will go pretty fast at the party.
So, the beer is made and tastes great, it’s been filtered, kegged, and carbonated. The only thing it’s lacking is a name. I decided to go with a take off of one of my favorite metal albums of the 80′s. Hoperation: Mindcrime.
Overall, I’m extremely happy with how this beer turned out. I’ll definitely be trying another one of these next summer!
