Sensory Session at the KKCBF

I did mention this to Oisin on another thread- I'm just checking to see if there is any interest in running a sensory session on the Saturday morning of the KKCBF (8th July). It will be a 2 hour session using the Siebel BJCP kit covering the following:

  • Acetaldehyde
  • Butyric
  • Diacetyl
  • DMS
  • Earthy
  • Ethyl Acetate
  • Ethyl Hexanoate
  • Geraniol
  • Indole
  • Isovaleric
  • Oxidisation
  • Spicy
We will go through each flavour and discuss where it came from; if it's appropriate; and if it is not appropriate, how to avoid producing it again.

The session would be for 10-12 people. I was thinking of seeing if anyone from the Kilkenny Brewing Club was interested first; then offer to the local brewers (Costellos, Sullivans, O'Haras etc); and finally if there are any places, to the general public.

Well Andrew, thanks for bringing it up again. I brought it up at our latest meeting and everyone thought it was a good idea. We do most of our dealings on our FB page, so I'm going to post this over there too to gauge numbers. Feel free to join up there too - https://www.facebook.com/groups/470532593150297/

Sorry Andrew, as to improve on perfection is impossible but we will all sign up for beer judging so we can help others improve  ;)
