What is mysery hop? Is this a joke term or are you really using a weed? How did you determine that it would be useful & safe for hopping your recipe?

With 6 ounces of hops, even mystery hops, it's going to be one bitter ass beer. I think your last statement is incorrect. There is no way that a beer that big and hoppy is "finished" at 5 days. Two months from now maybe.
