I brewed this special bitter two weekends ago and I popped the top yesterday for a gravity reading. The aroma in the gravity sample was very wine like, not sure if it’s the yeast or the hops as it’s the first time I’ve used either. I know it’s still a bit green so hopefully this mellows out.
Anyone else get a wine like aroma from wyeast 1469 or styrian goldings? This is a modified version of the Innkeeper based on what I had on hand and I’m thinking I over did the styrians. Beer was fermented at 66-67 wort temp.
