Amber and Hefe testing

I checked the progress on both batches this morning. Hefe came back at 1.010. That is unchanged from the last reading and it is clearer today. The Amber I tested for the first time and it too was 1.010. That puts the Alcohol by Volume at about 4.5 (4.45 actually) It is still bubbling, but less than once per minute.

Hefe is clearly ready to bottle and I could also bottle the amber, but think I will put it in a secondary container to let it clear more before I bottle it.

Tasted both. Good. Obviously the amber is hoppier, but both are good. Carbonation should add to the character....


  1. cannot wait for a few hefe's

  2. hey those hefe's are mine not yours!!
