[quote=FlyGuy]...the first place I would look is the freshness of my hops. Have you ruled that out? You never said.
I don't have much control over that. I bought the hops I'm going to use a few weeks back. Being Tettnanger I don't know which harvest they are from.
Also, out of curiosity, what is the 'DMS rest' you speak of? I have never heard the term before.
I basically think that I chill to early (not to quickly) and that there might be the need for a smidge of DMS in the aroma. That's why I'm planning to keep the wort hot for a while before chilling. Now I think I may just go with a 60 min boil and chill 10 min after flame-out. Later I may increase this time.
The rest of the ingridents are pilsner malt and WY2206 grown from a plate.
I'll also boil my racking hose just to make sure I'm not getting an infection from there. It looks a little gunky and I don't have the time to go to the LHBS.
