The gravity of the ale after two weeks at 18 degrees suggests an alcohol content of 1.3%, which is ridiculous. I was very suspicious of the OG reading, and the fermentation was pretty vigorous at the start, so I am assuming incompenence and bottling. The proof will be in the drinking.
The beer needs to mature for at least three weeks before drinking, but I used spray malt, so it should continue to improve for months after that.

Off to May and Brett today to pick up another wine kit and probably a new Blue Boar kit together with a new carboy.
