Kegged the Bitter

Friday I emptied 5 gallons of the newest beer into a keg. It’s been under pressure for two days now, and I just put it into the serving fridge. It is slightly under-hopped and a little too malty, but it should be a decent beer. Admittedly, I tasted it warm, in a frozen mug, so the flavor will be different tomorrow when it’s cellar temperature.

Final gravity was around 8° Bx (1.015 SG), putting it at about 5.5% ABV – too high to be a session beer. Guess it is a Strong Bitter rather than an Ordinary Bitter.

Glad it will be ready for Independence Day.
