Taste Notes

Delicious hop presence. Quite balanced. Not a hint of diacetyl or sulfur. A tad too sweet. Everyone who tried it loved it. Kerry said he detects a touch of astringency. V3: 5apr2021 1 week into lagering. Tastes clean and crisp with a satisfying amount of hop flavour. Lacks a bit of body. 1.010 FG. Increase mash temp to 154 and increase chloride content. A bit grassy on the finish, make sure no hops get into fermenter. Still need to try after 4 weeks lagering. 99% nailed it


A tad too light tasting. Clean. Beautiful hop presence. Nice bread crust flavor. Wyeast 2001 is better. V3.0: Same malt bill. No whirlpool addition. Imperial Urkel yeast with 1L starter Did a second sparge and boil to up the volume while maintaining gravity. 91% eff! Increased bittering hops by 30% to comp for top up. V4.0 Barke pilsner malt. Did a 1l starter, chilled, decanted, vitality starter on brew day. 2 g of CaCl and 1.5 g of gypsum. Double boil worked well. Nailed gravity. Tried to strain hops into fermenter but it was a disaster, lost a lot of volume and hopefully no contamination. Water profile for 2.0 CC6GXCQ
