Coopers have a white wine smell/taste?
« on: January 19, 2018, 04:00:32 PM »
Just as the title says, does anyone else smell or taste a white wine type of flavor in their Coopers kits?

I recently bought the Preachers Hefe Wheat beer kit as the store didn't have any plain wheat extract on hand and thought I would give it a go.

I remember my previous experience with Coopers kits have had the same type of smell/taste when I brewed them and I thought maybe it was just a bad batch or something, but then had a friend try my latest batch and he said the same thing.

Another note to make is I used Munich yeast in the beer so as to not use the yeast the kit came with. Anyone else have the same experience?

Can't say I have, as of yet. Then again, I haven't tried any of the wheat varieties from Coopers. Nor have I tried the Munich yeast (I assume it is the Lallemand type).
Quote of BB:    I think I've passed that point where I'm no longer under the influence of alcohol. The alcohol is actually under my influence..

Yep the Munich yeast is the Lallemand brand yeast. Found that it did not impart as much clove or banana notes like WB-06 does. Not sure I would use it again.

Beyond that though still has a bit of a wine smell to it but the flavor does not taste like it. Not sure what it is but each Coopers kit that I have tried has had the same smell to them.
