Reviving an old thread.
I just had a beer from a well known brewery that had Galaxy and it was very peppery, astringent and harsh. I used to love Galaxy. I’m wondering if it has changed over the years or if breweries are adding too much.
I have brewed with it in the past and enjoyed it but my...
I think I’m officially starting to dislike Galaxy. Anyone else? It comes across as peppery and almost smokey (cigar, cigarette) tasting. I feel like I never remember Galaxy being this way or maybe it’s just me and my palate.
How long is prolonged aging I wonder? I’ve mentioned before that after some age all their beers taste the same to me. Which leads me to what White said about ‘very little flavor contribution happens here unless prolonged aging’. Haven’t had a fresh TH in awhile.
Nate’s beers were so phenomenal back in the day could he have really been doing things so complicated five years ago? Have there been talks from any other brewers about a killer yeast strain regularly used in brewing? I have no idea so educate me.
Has anyone ever gotten any TH esters from just...
Have you used any of the ones listed @Dgallo? I wanna push it to the limit and get a yeast out of its comfort zone and recommended temp. Thinking the esters will be somewhat fruit forward so I’ll probably use a fruit hop paired with some old school hops to bring some citrus, dank and resin.
It’s been a long time since I posted here because I haven’t been brewing and supporting local breweries. Lately though I’m getting the itch to brew.
I’m thinking of brewing with an expressive NE yeast that will throw many esters. I’ve always been a 1318 guy but want to venture to another yeast...
I had a buddy visit Trillium with a head brewer from a local place about three years ago. When they arrived he said the brewers at Trill were very open about their ingredients and recipes which is cool. Their yeast is Conan, the only hops added hot side are at the end of the boil or WP and then...
Completely agree as I’m starting to go through these beers. My palate can’t distinguish any other flavors other than the yeast. Just had Green tonight which I used to love and it’s just juicy fruit bubble gum to me. Not a bad thing as some want and are looking for that in their beer but I want...
Just got some Tree House. Had an In Perpetuity tonight. Has Citra and Nelson in it. Was really looking forward to this beer but all I get is the yeast esters. Granted it was three weeks old. Feel like I couldn’t really pick out the Citra and Nelson in it. Had that signature juicy fruit bubble...
Tasted this brew of mine after first dry hop and it tastes very juicy fruit bubblegumesque. Slightly overpowering as the dry hops don’t come through but the dry hops have only been on it for a day. Hoping when I keg the keg hops will come through.
Not upset with the brew but man is it juicy...
Just brewed a variation of this. Only using SO4 and T58. Wasn’t interested in WB06 and its possible clove characteristics.
