I was finally able to pick up a new CO2 tank earlier today. The best part of this, was being able to get a first sample of the fully carbed Dirty Rotten Scoundrel.
DRS turns out to be quite tasty. The pepper comes across as a taste enhancer more than something that stands out. I do believe that the next time I brew this I may up the dose of pepper to see how much it changes the flavor profile. In the end though, the malt profile comes across as caramel and rich. There is a light floral, and spicy hop note, but in the end it is a good union of hops and malt to form a very drinkable beer.
Tomorrow I will be brewing up the Kolsch (though still not entirely certain how I will end up hopping it). I will also be bottling the Lavender Mash.
Coming up I will be working on building the platform for the second kegerator. I will also be kegging the Belgian.
Alas, it is now time for a pint … perchance a DRS calls me at this time.
