Many of us have been put off by Matt and his sulphury experience with this a while back. Can you tame the stench?

This year I think that I will finally develop an invisible cardigan and my project to extract gold from spiders legs will also reap great rewards.

i will be honest i haven't noticed it! if anything i would describe it as smelling like a proper pub!

its a handful tho it doesn't matter how much head space you give it it always seems to want more. I think this is the reason i went back to give it another go, entertainment value.

As for the beers i fermented them all at 18 degrees this time around. previous use i fermented higher around 20 the difference, from memory, is night and day. I am sure mark can vouch for how fruity the last beer came out.

Anyway back to WLP002 for a nice solid choc/BX christmas combo

Roger I wouldn't keep banging on about this because it probably wasn't the yeast's fault. I made those beers when I didn't have any fermentation temperature control, plus I used VWP for (not as it turns out) sterilising everything. I would say give Burton another go.

BUT, the sulphur actually fits. This strain came from Brakespears (now defunct) brewery in Henley upon Thames. I've spent alot of time in Henley over the years (mostly trying to move a boat with an oar), and drunk alot of beer there. It was sulphurous, and the brewery reeked of it.

YMMV.
