The last time I used this yeast was on a session and it had a terrible estery flavor. The ferm was maybe a bit warm say 72 but it was hoppy as hell and the yeast flavor was still dominating. Anyone else had this problem? I have another smackpack that I am thinking about just tossing because I don’t want to risk wrecking another 5 gallons.
I got a similar flavor out of White Labs Burton Ale yeast but not out of any other yeast I have tried. I take it that the flavor comes from too warm of a ferm then?
