Taste Notes

This really turned out quite delightful. This yeast takes a long time to settle out but once it does, it cleans up nicely; albeit not ever entirely clear. Malt balanced nicely with hops. Big nose and palette. Would be contest worthy if it fit style parameters better. May do ok entered as a tripple. Really not sure what I would change; maybe just go bigger; more Vienna or Munich and more finishing hops at knockout.

Notes

So, underpitched yeast by quite a bit according to tools. Attempted to compensate via adequte O2 and yeast nutrient additions to boil. Also planning to keep fermentation temps out of higher ranges. Don’t have quite enough time to step the starter again.
