All Grain Brewing / "Belgian" spice flavor wierdness
« on: December 08, 2009, 04:31:10 PM »
I brewed a small ale recently with 1/2 lb of 40l crystal and 60l crystal with 9lbs of base malt...generally pretty light. The hops came from my a backyard and the variety is unknown although it is not very strong in AA. The yeast was Wyeast 1056 American Ale. The fermentation temp was about 65F. It didn't finish for almost three weeks. I bottle conditioned it and let it set for three more weeks before trying it. It has the flavor of a Belgian spice that I was not expecting.
Q: Is this spicy flavor common with this yeast? Am I running into something else?
I was aiming for a more typical but less hoppy American ale.
Thoughts?
TIA
