Flavor: Excessively Sweet

Problem:

If your beer's flavor is excessively sweet, what you taste is maltotriose or unfermented malt sugar.

Causes:

  • Incomplete fermentation results in beer with excessive sweetness.

Cures:

  • Ensure that the wort is aerated properly before the yeast is pitched.
  • Use high-quality yeast in good condition, especially with high alcohol beers.
