Dusseldorf Altbier

Bottled this morning.  FG of 1.011 placing  ABV in the 5.6% range.  This is an experimental batch utilizing grain I have not used before at the maximum recommended usage rate.  I increased my hops schedule to 40 IBU's to keep up with the expected malt flavor increase.  Aroma at bottling: Sweet malt/graininess/slight nuttiness with German noble hops aroma, (Spalt).  Flavor:  Slighty sweet maltiness, slight nuttiness, lingering hop bitterness on the dry crisp finish, but balanced.  Two weeks until the next taste test.
