Made a beer yesterday. 2nd ever beer. 1 kg of Munton's beer enhancer, dissolved in 3 litres of hot water, then added a bag of hops, about 80g, Golding's. Brought this to the boil, then simmered for 15 mins. Took out the bag of hops, let drain into another container, put the pan in a bowl of cold water to cool. Once at 30° I poured it into a PET water bottle, added the starter and topped up with filtered water to about 4 litres. Starter was the remains of a previous bottle from beer no 1, plus yeast slurry from beer 1 Which had been in the fridge, plus some of the beer enhancer and some yeast nutrient. Seemed to work OK, and is now all in a water bath set to 18° with obvious signs of life.
Took a SG reading of 1.064 - for about 4 litres.
Can anyone tell me what kind of beer this will be, and roughly what % abv I'm looking at?
