Default Too Fruity = Dry Hop

I had a couple buckets of pale ale I went to keg up recently and they were a little too fruity. I used 1272 and my ferm temp went a bit high on me. I decided to dry hop one with 2 oz of CTZ for 10 days. Ended up with a killer IPA that tasted great. You couldn't taste the fruitiness at all. The other one mellowed in the fridge to some extent, but was still too fruity for my tastes.

Good to know!

The take home point is that you can never go wrong with dry-hopping!

Hops cure many ills in brewing.

Three weeks in primary, three weeks in the keg at cellar temp and two weeks in the fridge. I don't think more time would have helped much. It's not like the beer wasn't drinkable, just not up to my usual standards. I was very happy with the IPA though.
