I just bottled an IPA last night that I used Denny’s Fav 50 on.
I definately had a pronounced banana aroma when I opened the bucket. My final grav was 1.014 IIRC which was right on to the calculated final in my spreadsheet. (gravity taken 5 days ago)
Denny, you mentioned a very slight estery profile, mine seemed greater than that.
Might over pitching cause a bigger ester profile? I pitched a whole smack pack for a 3.5 gal batch.
Guessing my fem temp was about 68deg. No control except ambient air which is roughly 66 in the house. This is also the first time I attempted to do a mash out step. It was a BIAG so I figured since everything was already on the stove we’ll give it a go. Any effect that may have had on the final product?
I dont mind the aroma but I am hoping it disapates some while conditioning.
