  • Posted in thread: SUPER STRONG Grain smell flavor good or bad in beer? How on 07-31-2015 at 12:59 PM
    I hope you do follow up on this. I recently had a batch that exhibited this grain flavor also.
    It then went on to a green apple flavor, and it's starting to subside into a decent session

    So I made a gallon JOAM last night. (no cloves in house, so skipped that part)But I forgot to

    Glad to see this post. LHBS recommended Omega since it's local, and stated that the pitch count
    is at 150 billion. Sounded good to me.I'm brewing this weekend, and I'll post back with any
