BEAVERS!

This is pretty cool. I've worked with thiol enhancing yeasts at a winery before and it's pretty amazing how much fruit aroma they can produce. We did trials of four different strains using the same fruit, and the thiol forward yeast made a rosé that smelled like grapefruit juice.

It looks like some of these beer yeast strains are starting to hit the homebrew market, so I'll have to do some experimenting. Love me a nice aromatic pale or IPA.

But because this is Fark, I predict the rest of the thread will be:

Doesn't kveik yeast do the same thing?

Hipster horrors: Super-hoppy beer, but it's GMO.

I'm so glad attempts to make hoppy dark beers failed, it leaves a handful of beer styles that taste like beer, not pineapples and Mr. Clean.

Well, I don't.  But I don't mind if you do - I'll drink something else

That just speeds up the process

I've tried a number of IPAs and don't particularly care for them. I prefer stouts then a regular Pilsner.  Even the mildest IPA I've tried has had a grassy taste to me. The worst tasted like someone had hosed off the bottom of a lawnmower and bottles the runoff.

If someone offers a beer and all they have is IPA I won't turn it down or make comments. It's not polite. I'll thank them profusely and drink the beer with a smile.

I prefer my beer non-genetically modified thank you.

Actually laughed out loud (barked, really) at that.

Never drink beer made by a brewer that scratches their crotch a lot.

When you have to use scientific notation to record the IBUs you might want to pull back on the hops a little.

You'd think they would, but no.  Somewhere, some brewmaster is still bitter about losing a college Magic: The Gathering game to a woman with a deck that didn't go infinite but expressed everything in scientific notation, and so now they are channelling that bitterness into beer.

Seriously.  Any IPA that bitter needs to be paired with decent bbq to make it palatable.  You'd think they were allergic to malted barley.  People wonder why I drink scotch ales, porters, stouts, and Belgian ales.

Lets take the worse part of any beer, and use more of it.

Ya know, I did an "IPA" that had a lot of tropical/stone fruit hops from Hang 'Em High Hops (Michigan) that out of the bag had just fat fruit notes to 'em, but instead of going with a clean attenuator, I used Brett brux trio vrai for the primary. Came into the fermenter on the hot end, about 72-75, let it free rise, and hit a 1.001 final in about 30 days from 1.068. Don't you know, that was the juiciest, most tropical, fruity beer I've ever made; the caproic acid was muted and goddamn did those thiols pop.

I guess what I'm saying is lots of brewers don't like to experiment with the easy combos for new flavors, they all wanna put like muffin tops and cereal and a farkton of dank hops in it.

Yeah, kviek yeast would fill the bill of bringing thiols to front, I'm thinking.

Hahaha, jokes on you. Our double black IPA, at 10% and 75 IBUs is a routine best seller. Black as sin, full balanced hoppiness, dry as the desert. You don't know what you're missing.

Every beer you've ever had that uses non-European malts is genetically modified.
