This week’s Scratch beer took a traditional (yet not-often-used) path to our taps. On a recent trip to Germany, we got a taste of a krausened pils and loved the ester notes from the lager yeast and the subtle aroma of traditional European hops. Krausening is the process of adding wort and fresh yeast to chilled tanks that are finishing up fermentation. That’s what we did with Scratch #362 to capture the carbon dioxide and subtle yeast aromas.

We taste: a delicately complex balance of straw, herbs and fruity esters
