Not one of my best, but not one of my worst. I thought it was a bit sweet. Kristi and I drank most of it this weekend, with my father having a few glasses. It didn't yield as much as it should because I had a carbonation problem. Either my keg leaked or I was just stupid. I left my keg in the fridge with the CO2 tank attached. I carbonated at 17 PSI, and stored it initially at 30 PSI. I tried a pitcher one night, which means I had to drop the pressure to 7 PSI. I left it there, and the beer chilled, and the pressure dropped, and I lost my seal. The regulator then attempted to maintain a 7 PSI pressure, and just evacuated. Luckily, I have an attachment for the 16g CO2 cartidges, which allowed me to re-carbonate and pressurize. I just had no way of measuring pressure. So I made it too high and got a lot of foam this past weekend. Oh well. Maybe the scottish stout porter will work out better. I will re-fill my tank and pay more attention!
