First things, the rye is in full swing. Full blown fermentation started before the 12 hour mark. I’ll be playing with it again around the middle of next week.
Now, I am getting ready to keg the Rebellion. I just did a gravity check and then put it in the lagering unit so it can chill down before I possibly keg it tomorrow.
I have run across an interesting notion in the meantime. When I check gravity I usually use that sample as a taste test as well. Oh, and it has finished at 6%, so I am happy with its finish so far. The thought I am having though, is it seems a bit harsh still. Currently, I wonder if it would mellow a touch if I let it lager for an extra week.
I must have watched too many episodes of “How I Met Your Mother.” As I wrote that, I had a flash of Barney in my mind saying challenge accepted. I do believe that it will now be next week Saturday that I keg the Rebellion.
And now with all the “Return of the Jedi” referrences floating around in my head, I think I will go find a pint…
