Disaster update

Well it’s been a bad couple of months with brewing here. First the TTLL clone went very bad indeed, then my main sequence suffered a similar fate.

Both seem to have been afflicted by the curse of an overheated ferment, since both had off tastes and smells of pear drops (esters) and burnt rubber (autolysing yeast).

The lesson here seems to be if you’re brewing in August or early September then use a brew fridge to keep your temperatures under control!
