When I posted about my first beer, I mentioned that I had plans for something darker and stronger and more complex. Well, tonight I finally got to crack a bottle of my second brew. As planned, I made this one darker than the first, by adding a nice brown malt extract. I also added some brown sugar for body (and for increased alcohol - should be around 6% for this one) and some extra Fuggle hops for aroma.
I have a stout conditioning in my closet right now, and a witbier fermenting in my brew keg, plus some exciting plans for a collaboration with my HLM. Crafty girl plus clever chef hopefully equals kick-ass beer.
