BrewBlog: Surley Imperial Brown Ale
Specifics
General Information
Method: All Grain

This is the beer offered as wort at the AHA Rally at Surly Brewing.  Both of my primary fermentors were busy, so I brought a 5 gal secondary to the event.  I got four gallons of wort.

That's me in the brown hat at 10 seconds.

Here is a 9 minute clip of the rally...

Comments

I kegged this bugger on 19-Dec-2009.  The FG was 1.0185.  Beautify clear brown color, a bit sweet.  We'll see how it tasts when done carbonating.
