What causes the fusel alcohol flavor in a beer?
I cracked one today and it has a mild to moderate flavor and aroma of rubbing alcohol.
It’s not awful…just not really great either.
Used Danstar Bry-97 and fermented at a solid 63/64 in a swamp cooler in my basement.
It’s only been in bottles for a week, so I’m sure it’s a little young, but I certainly wasn’t expecting this type of flavor out of the beer.
