Kölsch I Said So - Kegging Day
My original gravity was 1.052 and the final gravity was 1.000, which gives me 6.8% abv.
I took a sip.
Fairly clean, I thought, but a bit tart in the finish. So off the the BJCP to see if I was FUBARed.
Soft, rounded palate comprising of a delicate flavor balance between soft yet attenuated malt, an almost imperceptible fruity sweetness from fermentation, and a medium-low to medium bitterness with a delicate dryness and slight pucker in the finish (but no harsh aftertaste).So it appears that I may have accidentally fallen into the style parameters, and just might have a good beer this time. YAY!
Although, I will have to wait until the beer has carbonated and has aged a bit. I now have to contemplate why my beers are over-attenuating. . .
