No, not legs; head . After only a week in the bottle (forgot to post about it, but didn’t get any pictures anyhow), I decided to toss a bottle of the Saazy Blonde into the fridge for a “carb check”
I primed with DME (dried malt extract) instead of sugar because I felt the hops were a might bit overpowering when I tasted my gravity samples. I knew DME would put a little bit of maltiness back, where corn sugar wouldn’t.
When I tasted a sample from the bottling bucket, I was a little concerned. It was way SWEET! Would the residual yeast be able to convert that all and return the beer to it’s hoppy dryness? I needen’t have feared. This bottle was just about fully carbed, which surprised me because I’d heard DME priming was slow. The head was impressive. Lacing was also pretty good. I could tell the flavor was still a bit sharp, I expect it’ll mellow in another few weeks. For now, it’s going to be difficult to hold off opening any more of these…at least until next Saturday.
