fast ferment experiment was created by sittingaround
im doing a fast ferment experiment..
I pitched at 28deg and set fridge to 27 and fermzilla to 13psi (DR Hans does this at 30deg and 30psi with no apparent issues)
Day 1 pitching OG was about 1.046
Day 2 1150am sg1034
Day 3 4pm sg1020 (still a little sweet to the tast)
Day 4 (today) 945am sg 1016 (noticed green apple for first time, prety neutral tasting beer/ little green apple not much bitterness at all/ also a mittle mouth puckering and very dry)
Im expecting this to finish at around 1010 or close to.
Im going to dry hop this arvo with 50g of citra and was thiking of adding some cascade
and im hoping with in the next few days that geen apple smeel cleans up.

Recipe cor19 pale ale expected IBU 24
1x tin Morgans pacific ale 1.7kg
1x tin morgans extra pale 1.5kg
10g gypsu,
1g calcium chloride
1/4 tea spoon sodium metabisulphite

Hi Sittingaround, It could be your brew has or is developing Acetaldehyde, which develops I understand from not controlling your fermentation temperature. Its produced by the yeast and gives a green apple taste.
I would be interested to know how it turns out.
Good luck. Cheers mate.

Yep green apple is a stressed ferment, I hate that taste I'm very sensitive to it.
I don't know how or why Dr Hans ferments at those temps and pressures, I personally wouldn't.
Though it is good to experiment like you are.
Only advice I have is not to bottle it or package it if that taste is still there, leave it on the yeast it may clean up that taste, but it may not, lets hope it does!
Keep us informed!
Cheers sittingaround!

So.....
when keged it smelt good and had a slight fruity flavour to it.

at 1 week in the keg it smelt like green apples had bread like rabbits.

its been in the keg for 2 weeks and at this point its actually very drinkable. the green apple smell and flavour has disapeard. its has lovley citrus notes and a light fruity flavour.

My keg is leaking c02 from somewhere so its not fully carbed up unfortunatly but i feel this one will go down well.
