Goes-a Data and Results

 Notes:

Descriptors: bready, yeasty, coriander

Salty minerally taste, but not overwhelming probably about the right amount of sea salt added. Highly carbonated (tried to just bottle at 2.5 volumes). Little to no head retention. Smells a little yeasty, with coriander coming through. Coriander is in the taste as well, but unfortunately, there is no sourness . Decent mouthfeel for the low gravity. Crackery maltiness is there but low. Finishes dry, but not like you’d think for such a lower FG. I’ve heard that WLP677 doesn’t work very well to sour out a beer, I should have listened. If your going to use White Labs, use their new WLP672 Lactobacillus brevis to sour, I’ve had success with that in just a month.
