Making Beer: Altbier...revisited
Ok...so I don't know if you read Bryan's post, but, after that I just had to taste the Alt again. There's something I need to keep in mind. The first pull from the keg is right from the bottom. This means you get all that yeasty and hoppy stuff that falls out of suspension in your first glass. Whoa! That first glass was bitter! The second glass was soooo different. I mean the bitterness was nowhere near the same level. It was much more balanced than the first glass. Mmmmm...Black Alt.
