For me, Lukas gets first place on the tastings (Brown IPA), sinkas and Lukas get second place (mulberry Belgian Trippel and Oatmeal Stout). Third place probably a red IPA that Sarah and I brewed.
Brown IPA: 300 grams / of whirlpool hops and then another 3000 grams of dry hops in... Well, I'm trying to work out what volume Lukas had? It was a "normal size batch" so let's assume 23L at flame-out. With those amount of hops, he probably got 18L into fermenter and 13L into the keg
Mulberry Belgian Trippel: I'm not into Belgians but this brew of sinkas, I certainly find enjoyable. The sweetness of the mulberries balanced out the phenolics (which I don't like) of the style. (I think I'm write in saying Belgian is a phenolic style?)
Oatmeal Stout: Another style I'm not that into but I enjoyed this one because it had lots to explore - silkiness, molasses, coffee etc.
Red IPA: Well, given the fact we used 500 grams less hops than Lukas , this beer is not bad. Definitely not a show winner as it won't stand out at all. It's very easy-drinking though, a bit of toffee sweetness which balances the hops. I better get sinkas to taste it as that toffee sweetness might actually be diacetyl and he's the king of diacetyl detection
This Friday, 6pm at The Queens in Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley.
If anyone wants to share an Uber in and back with Sarah and me, let me know.
