Sugar Shack - 3rd Brew
« on: May 04, 2012, 01:16:49 PM »
Finally back on my feet...I think :)

Maple Syrup is so finicky. 1st was good but subdued, the 2nd was overpowering and the yeast ate the sugars....I'm hoping the third hits the sweet spot, no pun intended.

Filtering the beer at keg/lagering step should help reduce the chance the syrup loses sweetness....I hope...
