Black Pepper Saison

13 Jan

Not sure what happened on this brew, but I think it was a problem with DMS because the beer had a strange off taste. It wasn’t too bitter or too sour, instead, it had a sulfur aroma/taste that overpowered most everything else. I’m also going to blame high INITIAL fermentation temps – because I’ve used WLP565 up to 80+ degrees before and made an amazing Saison…but the difference here is that it may have started way too hot. The sample I tasted before bottling seemed very good. Really upset because I was hoping for a nice black pepper/citrus taste here – and it just didn’t come through. Giving this one only 50%, not good at all. BlackPepperSaison
