I think saying that all my IPAs are bad are a bit misleading since i have never brewed anything else than IPAs except for this last beer which turned out good. I really should brew new beers with my new bottling technique to see what happens.

Is it good because i used star-san and an autosyphon for the first time instead of sucking on a tube and chemipro oxi or it is just the recipe and my high hop beers will still suck? (this one was a really low hop beer)
Might this have something to do with it?

Is it actually rare to use your mouth when transferring beer? I swear i have seen a lot of post saying that "i just suck the tube". Maybe not on this forum though...

I have seen a couple of threads explaing why sucking is a horrible practice, but thought it was generally understood to be unsanitary, and unnecessary.

Even without a syphon, fill the hose with sanitized water (no rinse), let the no rinse pull the beer into the tube, let the no rinse go into a bucket or trash can,move the hose to your keg or bucket when beer runs out.

Syphoning is easy. NEVER SUCK.

Even if that wasn't the problem, it is a bad practice.

I think i finally produced a good IPA with lots of hops and dryhops and no astringency.

It is probably the Star-San and auto-siphon which helped me solve the problem.
