Weekend Update: First Pickings of Hops
Monday 14 July 2008 Filed in: Test Batches | 6ixth Sense Ale | Hops
The temperature in the fermentation room was gradually raised each day this past week for the yeast working on the test batch of the 6ixth Sense Ale. The room started at 64ºF last Sunday, and reached 80ºF this Sunday.
Spent much of Saturday cleaning and sanitizing.
Sunday, was able to pick just under a pound of the Centennial hops. More hops to follow as the season progresses. Centennial is one of the "citrusy C" varieties, and is sometimes called a super Cascade.
