Quick Update

We just opened up our Irish Car Bomb Stout since it’s been fermenting for over a week, and has stopped showing signs that it needs to ferment further.

GOOD NEWS!!! It appears that our wort darkened considerably while fermenting!  It’s almost black now.  I’d call it either a very dark Brown Ale, or a light Stout.  We took a little taste test and it actually tastes like a beer!  It’s not exactly what we wanted, but we can definitely taste some alcohol in it, although it is obvious that we did in fact add too much water and that hurt the other flavors.

So, we’re going to bottle up half of it tomorrow, as it’s worth saving at least half the batch for light sipping.  Now that we’ve learned from our mistakes, we’ll probably start our second brew (A Brown Ale) next week.
