I wanted to use some different malts with cascade so we could see what malts we liked. Most of notes on this homebrew with be in the video with the Pilsner and 2-Row malt.
This vienna version finished at 5.94% ABV
Color: Orange hazy. Lots of bubbles
Smell: Sweet vs the others ones. Toasted smell. Nothing on the hop side. The malt takes over.
Taste: Toasted malt, light body. I think the body is from the 150 mash in. Still not getting any of the hops in the taste. Its missing something. Doesnt taste like a balanced beer.
Color: Light yellow not as bright as the 2-Row
Smell: Toasted malt upfront with some floral
Tasting: Toasted bread citrus bitterness in the back. Taste like a balanced beer
Overall: I think this one the best out of the 3. That toasted bread adds an extra layer to this homebrew.
