Sorry you couldn't get there mike
Thanks a heap for the lift Lucas
. Freo was funny
. Simon and Steve managed to do a few paddles while the rest of us had so many great beers here that everyone had brought, our palates were shot. (Maybe we should have turned the glass around
And how good to get a surprise late entry from Rob
Forgot to get someone to triangle test me but I don't reckon I would have picked a difference anyway. So, let's say the two of us couldn't pick a difference, one picked a difference but not on the right beer and four did pick a difference.
Out of those 4...
NME: Was given the chill as the odd beer. Out of 50, he scored the chilled beer 3 points lower (41 vs 38) due to its, "more subtle/muted in bitterness."
Skippy: Also given a chill as the odd one out. He scored the chilled beer 7 points higher (48 vs 41) due to, "more hops aroma, hop bitterness."
Aces: Stu picked the correct odd one out but like me, finds it hard to score / describe beers. (He might be able to add his impressions below).
Rob: Rob was given a no-chill as the odd one out. He scored the chilled beer 5 points lower (34 vs 29)than the no-chill due to the no-chill being, "slightly less bitter but with more pronounced aroma."
So make of it what you will
. No guarantees either that I didn't make an error in my pouring/recording
Both the above brews used the BIAB bag as a hop sock which was pulled 5 mins after the boil. We all thought it would be interesting to do the same thing on a low IBU beer.
Anyway, great to have a beer and get to actually have a yarn this time instead of racing around brewing. Thanks a heap to for the excellent beers.
