First taste using BRY-97 yeast, Simcoe & Amarillo hops.
It's still hazy, not concerned. However the passion fruit
taste is overpowering, from the Simcoe ? I could do without. It's a very
good beer (nice change, not great), but not what I'm looking for in a beer.
.5 oz Centennial-Pellets @60min, 1 oz Amarillo-Pellets @ 10min, and 1 oz Simcoe-Pellets @ 5min.
Hop spider removed after boil. Simcoe seems to overpower the malt, perhaps 1 oz was too much for a 4.25 gallon batch.
Satisfied for getting the hop flavor, have to figure out which one I like, and back it off a bit.
It tastes as if I'm biting into a passion fruit, I'll call it Passion Ale.
It may be the yeast making the hops very pronounced.
Magnum and Nugget are up next, never tried those.
Galena is on my list to try also, for futures batches.
