Statistics

General Info

  • Use a clean bittering hop.
  • Use a clean fermenting yeast.
  • Hop flavor best when the beer is relatively young.
  • To avoid stuck sparge, use .5 pounds of rice hulls.

Comments

Dry hopped the first keg with Goldings. Tasted spicy and pleasant with a nice hop nose. Slight diacetyl (stressed yeast?). Dry hopped second keg with Cascades - still tasting some diacetyl. No verdict on that one yet (April 15, 2010).
