“Leaves a very crisp, clean, refreshing taste”

By: Kris Olson | Date: Nov., 21st 2012 | Beer(s) Brewed: Bohemian Pilsner

Ferments well to 75% attenuation at 45˚F. Strong notes of diacetyl were present after the first week (extract based pilsner). Tasted like sucking down buttered popcorn. However, a diacetyl rest by removing the carboy from the fridge and placing it at 72˚F for 3 days cleared up all noticeable diacetyl. Leaves a very crisp, clean, refreshing taste.
