10 days after kegging and this has become really good. It's my favourite beer I've brewed so far I think.

Now that the yeasty banana flavours have softened, it's got lovely raisin notes and a tiny bit of chocolate comes through now too. Still a tiny bit too sweet but if that doesn't scare you, this is actually a recipe I'd recommend. Definitely give it some more bittering hops though, and a touch more vanilla perhaps.

I'm brewing this one again. Really nice and it's helped me understand how time conditions beer.

Edit: and yes, I'm sinking homebrew on a Tuesday afternoon...#lockdownlife😁
Brewing with a Brewster Beacon, no experience and very little clue. Veteran of a hundred 'eBrews', but I've never been to Israel or speak their language.

Total lifetime brews attempted: 13

Nice work Monkeh. It's a really interesting grain bill you've used, among others things. I shall be returning to it for future inspiration.  👍

I have a pack of Lallemand Munich Classic and this recipe might get a run out, or something very similar.

I like the tasting notes, Monkeh, and glad the yeast flavours have backed off a bit. You could consider using a clean bittering hop to bump up the IBUs (Northern Brewer, Target, Perle, Magnum) and save your noble hops for the flavour and spice. You could even use something like Bullion and hope the berry flavour complements the vanilla but at that point you may as well make a cheesecake. 😆 Did the gravity finish as low as expected? A high FG is something that can cause a beer to seem sweeter, because the extra body mitigates some of the hop bitterness.
