1994 Batch #6 – Pablo’s Extra Stout

Pablos-Extra-StoutPablos-Label-back-side

Everyone seemed to love my beer, and I offered to make the beer for my sister’s wedding. This was the first beer that made it to Sue and Jon’s wedding beer list.

The last consistent refinements were to start using gelatin finings in secondary to clarify the beer and reduce yeast sediment in the bottles, and experimenting with gypsum in the boil for the British styles.
