    Hefe Weizen flavour

    Yep, temp control. Pitch at around 18 then slowly take the temp down to 10-12 deg C in Inkbird controlled fridge. Isoamyl Acetate could be it - the aroma/flavour can happen very quickly when it does - within a couple of days.

    Hefe Weizen flavour

    Pretty bog ordinary - Grainfather with 5kg Pils, 300g of carapils. Magnum at 60 min Saaz at 10 min. Saflager yeast after oxygen Usually this fault appears if there is a slow start with the yeast.

    Hefe Weizen flavour

    Hi All, Ive just had a Paulaner Hefe Weizen and the flavour is the same as when something goes wrong with my lager making..... the blurb states "banana and cloves" with a somewhat bittersweet aftertaste I didn't enjoy the beer as it reminds me of my stuff-ups :( Can anyone recognise that...

    Rain water chemistry

    I ask the question even though the answer would seem simple..... Are there any chemical assumptions to make when inputting rain water into some of the brewing water calculators for brewing. For me it would be inland rain onto a Colourbond roof then into a Poly tank. Thanks, Bruce

    Brown Sugar

    I remember making a English brown ale some time back, the recipe called for molasses in the boil..... worst beer I have ever made, two sips and straight down the sink. Just wrong.

    My dark beers are tasting hard and bitter

    Hi huez, I have had a look at Ez water, that might be a better place for me to start than Bru'n Water ( brain might explode) . If you use a water filter, what would you reset your water chemistry to? It's only been the dark beers that have been affected of late - my English Bitters are coming...
