Taste Notes

Excellent hoppy clone of the Coveted Sierra Nevada Torpedo. The high gravity wort really does need a 1.5 pack starter on 3 litres to kick it along. Does take quite some time for the hops to settle, but at 8 weeks in the keg in cold storage, settles very nicely. Worth while to do a comparison with American Ale II. Suggest using Polyclar Brew Brite as a 5 minute addition instead of whirlfloc for a superior clear result. Defineitely worth while racking the beer from primary and then again for 3-4 days from secondary to allow full settling. This beer produces a truckload of trub even at Secondary, but the results are excellent.
