So, this didn’t come out so great. I was trying a new yeast-it was on sale and it described itself as adding Brut champagne characteristics. I figured, why not?
But it took 36 hours to get active and I think that contributed to a beer that just…missed the mark. It was overcarbonated, and tasted uneven; sometimes a little floral, sometimes a little dirty.
