Good. A bit softer and more rounded than the regular helles they offer. The Vienna was the other beer I had at their beirhall, so good!!

 

yeah - I've had it a couple of times on tap.  if you like lagers it's inspirational and affordable to boot.

I'm on my third pint of drez classic and it's the best one yet.  the first had a lot of yeast in it making it taste.....  yeasty?  not great anyway.  now it's pretty great.

Once I get back from vacation I am going to fire up a batch of DPA!  Can not wait.

 

Oh, the keg that was not able to spund last week is now sitting at 30+ psi in my basement.  I added 4oz of sugar to get it going.  I think it is towards the end and hope to get that in the fridge this weekend.

So I'm thinking next time I dry hop I'll do it in primary towards the very end of fermentation possibly with a little sugar just to make sure the O2 gets scrubbed.

This is really where I am moving with my current thoughts on dry hopping.  I no longer think the early biotransform hop is worth it.  

 

My plan would be to ferment out

moderate cold crash 45-50

bring back to 65

add priming solution to fermenter

once I see some activity I will move the beer to a keg with the DHs waiting

I worry about foaming when trying to rack warm and probably fermenting beer.  if you can pull that off though it sounds like a great way to do it.

Closed transfer under pressure.

I've experienced problems there (a little bit) but maybe it's just a matter of more back pressure on the receiving end.

Both versions drink great. I'm not sure if it's the wheat but they have a great mouthfeel without sweetness.

Yup!  I think the wheat does add to it.
