This yeast is a real versatile beast... this tastes completely different to the original, which I'd chalk up to better temperature control through the fermentation (lower temperature). Note that some (Kyle) had suggested the first was infected, and given that this was using yeast washed from that batch, I'd say it definitely was not. None of the funk that the first exhibited made its way into this one; far cleaner, almost dry taste - and the 10 tea-bags added an almost perfect level of spicing / apple character. Note the apple is not what you'd expect from acetaldehyde, but rather what I recognise from the tea-bags.

Definitely a keeper. Excited to see how it tastes carbed to 2-3 volumes and cold crashed for a week or so.
