It's down to 1.018. There's a lot of yeast still in suspension and it tastes like grapefruit juice. I can't tell if it's the yeast or all the Apollo late hops.

That's what I did. Started from a 2 cup starter and went up to 2 liters. By the end krausen was shooting out of the flask. I hope it doesn't suck. And if it does lesson learned.

Heffeweizen skunky flavor?

The last two heffs I've picked up have had a skunk flavor/aroma to them. Most recently the Goose Island Urban heff. Is this a characteristic of an American Heff?
