Nelson Sauvin off flavour/aroma

Started this discussion. Last reply by Kevin Sharp Jul 24, 2016. 8 Replies

Hi all, just wondering if anyone else had found this year's crop a bit odd. I use it in most of my NZ style beers for a bit of backbone but have found this year's crop quite spicy and even sulphurous…Continue

Sam DT replied to Joe harvey's discussion Williams warn 10ltr brew keg fermenting help
"Just to add to Peter I think there are two potential issues that you may encounter - one solve-able one not. If you're fermented too warm for the yeast spec without pressure you're probably going to have some off flavors, that will come…"

Sam DT replied to Jules Brown's discussion Is Panhead going downhill?
"And there we have it: http://www.beernation.co.nz/panhead-withdraws-off-beer/ As a side note definitely agree with Peter - great to be able to get Emmersons so widely now - they seem to have done a great job maintaining quality too."

Sam DT replied to Jules Brown's discussion Is Panhead going downhill?
"They're definitely having issues - there was a batch of supercharger that had acidity issues a few months back- really sour, there were about 10 reports on a thread on the Chch home brew club about this - I got one at a bar a couple of weeks…"

Sam DT replied to bazza's discussion Large fermenters
"Unless you're planning on cold crashing them for quite some time you don't really need to seal them up as with all the CO2 pumping out it'll be under a slight pressure all the time anyway. All you really need is something to stop crap…"

Sam DT replied to Grant Abbott's discussion crash cooling question
"Mate, You're a machine! Is it a stupid idea - no, is it necessary - possibly? Is it worth the effort - not for me but you seem to have done a good job. I was also concerned about this too so actually stopped cold crashing for a while and just…"

Sam DT replied to Crusader-Rob's discussion Making your Beer Red.....
"Yeah that should be heaps, I think avoiding oxidation would be key to avoiding browning but not usually an issue if you're throwing them in for re-fermentation. I suppose the other thing is clarity, I used gelatin on my cherry berliner at…"

Sam DT replied to Crusader-Rob's discussion Making your Beer Red.....
"Hey bro - blueberries do go nice and red in a sour - I've used them at a rate of 125g/l - I think I've got some kicking around at home - the flavour was a bit off but the colour should be there still if you want to take a look. Might also…"

Sam DT replied to nzbrewer's discussion What are you brewing?
"I bring it up to the boil, boil for five and then throw in my immersion chiller to bring it down to strike temp - with stirring the temp drop takes less than five minutes. I haven't actually noticed a difference - will have do do a side by side…"

Sam DT replied to nzbrewer's discussion What are you brewing?
"Yep that's the one - they still recommend oxygenation just after yeast pitch to the standard 8ppm (bottom of page 7). In theory if you have a large enough yeast pitch you shouldn't need to oxygenate but at standard commercial or home-brew…"

Sam DT replied to nzbrewer's discussion What are you brewing?
"Yeah I've got come K-meta from cider making but haven't taken the plunge just yet, Chch water is oxygenated tho so I figure a quick boil to knock it out of solution wouldn't be a bad idea. Oxygenation good, oxidation bad. You still…"

Sam DT replied to Crusader-Rob's discussion Importing Bulk Hops
"Nice so around $5.50 per 100g depending on what you get, when ordering a couple of kg at a time (I averaged across Amarillo, Cascade and Citra) - that's not shabby at all plus guaranteed latest season. Not much fun for LHBS's tho, although…"

Sam DT replied to Crusader-Rob's discussion Importing Bulk Hops
"I'd never really thought of it but by the looks you can just order direct from Yakima anyway even in smaller amounts - Looks around $4 per 100g + postage if you buy by the pound. What kind of shipping costs did you come out at Kevin?"

Sam DT replied to nzbrewer's discussion What are you brewing?
"Nice, was just reading up on that recipe for some tips on my NZIIPA a couple of weeks ago - his mash temp seems surprisingly high - I ended up going for 64 and still fell three points short of my 1.010 target with four re-hydrated US05 packs…"
