On last sunday I made an all-grain APA with an alternative equipment, trying to reduce space, so I used my fermentation bucket as a mash tun with a bazooka screen on the tap to filter the mash, but unfortunately after a few minutes before starting to get the mash out the tun the mash stopped to flow, then I tried everything to get the flow back but it didn't works. Then I get the mash out with a small pot and passing it through an stainless steel filter.
Result: I got a cloudy mash, but because I didn't want to desist of my beer I went to the next step and boiled the whole thing. After the whole process I finished with fermenting thing. I got 15 brix at refratometer after the boiling but I don't think it's true because of my "unfiltered" wort.
The first 2 days the fermentation gone vigorous and today it starts to slow down, so I get a sample to prove and feel what it tastes. Well, I feel a sweet aroma, something like grapes, so it's my question, is this type of aroma expected?
My APA recipe: 5kg of Pale Ale Malt (Belgium) 1kg of Viena Malt (Belgium) 30gr Cascade Hops at 60 min 20gr Fuggle Hops at 60 min 30gr Cascade Hops at 10 min 1pkg of Safale US-05 Yeast 24liters of boil
Sorry for my newbie question, I'm just trying to know what to expect in some situations. It's only my 4th beer.
