Might be a small smokey thing with this one since the burner under the mash kettle was going while the pump stop recirculating the wort. *sigh* Otherwise, very smooth brewday with minimal hassles 1 week on and the beer has been fermented at 65F with no problems. Pulled out of the fermentation fridge to put in the new beer. Still a big fluffy head on top.
My (Drew) portion definitely carried a smoky note to it. In order to combat it, I added 2 oz of French Oak cubes (soaked in Tequila for 6 months) directly to the keg in a hop sack for 1 week prior to serving. To add an extra bump a fresh extract of coriander (about 2 oz) and 20 drops of Red pepper extract and 20 drops of black pepper extract were added to the keg post carbonation. This part became known as "One Night in Tijuana" and was utterly destroyed at the 2012 Southern California Homebrewers Fest.
