My latest batch of beer is ready for drinking. I’ve decided to call this batch, “This Old Mountain Farmhouse Ale.” I found a recipe for a similar beer online that I modified to use different grains and different varieties and amounts of hops. The resulting brew is refreshing, perhaps a bit hoppier than I hoped, but good. I haven’t decided yet if the sour mash is just a subtle component of the overall flavor; if I don’t know what I’m supposed to be tasting; or if the higher-than-hoped-for hoppiness is overpowering the sour flavor. Regardless, it’s good.
