Rerun V6

Version 6 was really nice and several people liked it. I decided to use that as a base and start to experiment with some ingredients.
V7 / (V6b)
For this one, I used:
1400Gr Pale malt
400Gr Crystal malt
26Gr Hops <- 1 gram more hops.

The mashing (improved procedure) produced about 12 liter of liquid holding about 1040 in gravity.

Irish moss was added after 45 minutes of boiling and the wort was left to boil for another 15 minutes.

After I stopped the boiling, I immediately started to cool it as quickly as possible by putting the pot in cold water with the tap on to continuously replace the cooling water.

Ale yeast and 2 weeks of fermentation before bottling.

End result.
Nice drinking beer.
