Thanks Mardoo! I just submitted the wlp351 batch in the VIC case swap, keen to get some feedback from the fellas too
Lethal, some feedback on your results would be great.
I brewed another batch recently but this time in the spirit of the original, I used no temp control. However the beer was in my under-house area (bricked in and cooler than the house as verandahs provide shade in the front and rear).
Kegged last week and hopefully ready for the next comp. This one is more banana-flavoured than previous, but the balance is still great.
* Side note: I found some links to Dampfbier and have a strong issue with Colonial Brewing stating that the style disappeared into the history books by the late 20th century, as if they're solely responsible for bringing it back. Load of BS!
Back to what's important, i was searching for a list of descriptors for my comp entry, and when I'm finished I'll happily post it here if there's any interest. A little bit of history/background and some style/flavour guides that I can locate and verify from my own brewing.
