The Crab Tree Effect

Posted August 10th, 2015 | 0 Comments

Why does homemade beer sometimes tastes more like cider? Catabolite repression is the technical term when beer kits are cut with large amounts of sucrose or glucose. The yeast will behave differently creating by-products, which leaves a cidery taste. Fusel alcohols will remain, giving a cloying unnatural sweetness combined with a harsh bitterness and a deceptive impression of body and mouth feel.

The Home Vintner prides itself on supplying the best beer kits and add on packs for our discerning customers.  It’s time to come back to home brewing and be impressed.
