I just got word from my fellow brewing partner that the SMASH Fuggles beer we brewed is finished and is pretty tasty. We brewed a couple experimental beers were we used some 4 and 7 year old hops since we did not want to just waste them by throwing them away. When I designed these beers I made sure to calculate the AA’s through a degradation calculator to get a close approximation of the actual AA’s left in the hops. These were stored well at 20*F in vacuum sealed bags w/ zero light penetration.
The OG = 1.044 and the FG = 1.012 w/ an ABV = 4.20%
I am looking forward to trying this out on Friday. I will post about the tasting session next week.
