Altbier tasting

First Tasting

It's time to taste the Altbier I brewed on Jan 24th. It's only been in bottles for 18 days but I think it's time to try it. Although 6-7 weeks conditioning is recommended I'm too impatient to wait that long.

It's smooth and malty, a bit ester-y, but hopefully that will drop out over the next few weeks, and very clear. I actually tipped the bottle right up (forgetting about the sediment) but the yeast remained stuck to the bottom of the bottle. Overall I'm pretty pleased with this, I'll try it again in a couple of weeks.
