Phantasm helps you unlock unreal natural flavors in your fermentation. Derived from the legendary Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Grapes, Phantasm is a Thiol precursor powder that in the right fermentation conditions will unlock large amounts of free thiols like 3SH bringing tropical, passionfruit aromas to your beer. Thiols pair exceptionally well with Esters and Terpenes and can bring depth and complexity to a range of styles including IPA, Lagers and Mixed Fermentation.
For best results, add Phantasm during the whirlpool at rates of 1 – 2 lbs per bbl (1 – 2.5 oz per 5-gallon batch) and ferment with a thiolized yeast strain. Phantasm will bring a touch of fermentables to your beer, around 0.3°P (1.0012 SG) alongside a slight pH drop.
In discussion with the creator of Phantasm Jos Ruffell, we talked about the dosage rates varying. The market had a dosage rate recommendation of 2.5oz per 5 gallons. Especially when using the latest thiol boosting yeasts from Omega you don't specifically need 2.5oz as even 1 oz is going to provide a significant thiol boost. So we packaged it down in 1oz increments so that you can decide exactly how much you want to put in. For us here at MoreBeer! 1 oz provides a nice boost and is a reasonable cost per batch. If you want to go extreme feel free to add more.
