Today I pulled two of my recent brews for a side-by-side taste test.
The beer on the right is my amber ale brewed with 2-row and Breiss 40L with Cascade hops using the Omega Hothead kveik yeast. This was the beer I stuck my arm in the bottling bucket. I also used a secondary (14 days) with this brew after 4 days in primary. Very nice balanced flavor after a month of bottle aging.
The beer on the left is my copper ale using 2-row and Breiss copper carapils with Cascade and Citra hops using the Loki kveik yeast. I only used the primary (21 days) with no secondary. The color wasn’t as copper as I wanted, more of a golden color. still a very nice color and flavor with earthy flavors from the Citra hops after a week of bottle aging.
Both are keepers, but of the two my favorite is the latter, the copper ale. The Citra hops and Loki yeast with its citrus flavor profiles give this a great taste and hoppy flavors without being over powering.
