It’s been a steep learning curve, but we now seem to be able to brew decent beer. Our lager was great and, tonight, we drank the first bottle of our IPA . We’re delighted with it.
We can’t really give you objective tasting notes. Suffice to say, it has a really nice fruity, malty flavour, and tons of hop aroma (which we’ve also struggled to achieve in the past). Having been in the bottle for a mere 10 days, the yeast hasn’t quite compacted at the bottom of the bottle, but there was a lovely dense, long-lasting head. We normally just get fizz, so things have definitely taken a step forward for us.
We’re giving most of the credit to liquid yeast — it seems to add a certain complexity we were missing.
Next up, a mild.
