I have brewed a few batches of beer, and I have noticed a strange thing: the
Ales smell like beer while they are fermenting, and the Lagers smell like cat
s--- while they ferment. The lagers I have made all have been fermented with
some hops left in the wort. Could this be the cause of the smell, or is it
the type of yeast? By the way, the lagers tasted OK when they were done, its
just the smell while they are working...
Thanks for a great forum...
