Dutch term or phrase: eindvergist
Ik ben beschrijvingen van Belgische bieren aan het vertalen en ben de term 'eindvergist' nu al een paar keer tegengekomen. Ik denk dat eindvergisten vertaald kan worden als 'attentuation' (http://www.whitelabs.com/beer/homebrew_terms.html) maar ben niet helemaal zeker. Ik twijfel ook hoe dat dan zou werken in een zin als de volgende: Een eindvergist, mild-bitter pilsener, een lichte hoparoma met een spontaan karakter. Suggesties zeer welkom!

Yep, final attenuation is a noun. There is no adjective for this, the adjective is: fermented to completion.

  -> Yep, final attenuation is a noun. There is no adjective for this, the adjective is: fermented to completion. And why a neutral if you are not really familiar with brewing and beers, post a discussion entry and I will answer.
