If i had known that this yeast could truely deliver on a trappist ale I would have been using this yeast much much sooner.
I'm very impressed. Anyone else use this for various trappist styles?
OG was 1.073
FG is 1.014
My Belgian Pale Strong Ale is only 11 days old and the sample tasted so good I kegged 5 out of 10 gallons.
Since my only other beer right now is my increadably tart hefe... I decided to keg early. It tastes amazing and I can only suspect that the other 5 gallons will be even better once it ages for a month or so.
Damn I hate it when the only beer you have on tap tastes odd and you end up counting the minutes till you can keg another batch of something else.
I'm actually very very very suprised that this beer does not taste "green".
Mild but complex balanced esters. Great mouthfeel and subltle alcoholic feel that suprises you with a buzz you were not expecting. You'd swear there were some spices added but there were not. This will definiatley become a house beer ( though the 7% alch does not make it a session beer..lol)
Still needs to clear, but I'm not tasting any yeast bite. For soem reason this beer has broken ost of my rules and still managed to come out great. SO great it must be evil! Applicable beer name soon to follow.....
Oh no.. two beers in the same keggorater with completely diff temp requirements!
Hmm.. enough typing after a few "samples".
