[QUOTE=flananuts;3620569 The sample was at 40.6 deg when I tasted it.[/QUOTE]

This, the colder the beer, the more muted hop flavors become. Let it "warm" up a few minutes, you'll be surprised. I like drinking hoppy beers at 45f or so.

Will do. I went to check on my carbonation level and noticed the beer out post is leaking (muthaF). Usually my cornies are solid but this is a pita.

I recon this will be fully drinkable sometime around St. Patti's day. I'll probably go right to bottles once it's carb'd up.
So since I am completely new to home brewing. How do you put beer in the keg then bottle it?

Once you carbonate your beer to the desired pressure you can transfer using a number of methods. I use the combination of a picnic tap, racking cane, and bung to do a DIY counter pressure fill. I just lower the co2 pressure down to about 4-6 psi when filling.

Update- this was a huge hit! I brought some into work and a friend who loves big beers told me he felt like he was high about 10 minutes after splitting a liter with me.

I also made a 15 gallon version using the same recipe minus the dry hop and it is freaking unbelievable.

Default Sooo Bitter


I brewed this on Dec. 17th and kegged it about three weeks later. It is so bitter that I can't drink it. It's mellowed to some extent over the last few weeks, but I'm worried about this brew. Has anyone that brewed this had a similar experience?

I'm tempted to pull it out of the kegerator and let it warm up so that it can age faster.

Thoughts?

Room temp for 4-6 weeks would be a fair guess but three weeks to keg might be hard to overcome. Time is your friend.

Going to put a variation of this recipe to the test today. Cold outside, but that's not going to get in the way. Looking forward to the results....

Started the mash about 30 min ago can not wait to have a glass of this. Followed the recipe but using new Safale 05 didn't have any washed. I only had to buy one oz of crystal for this already had enough of all the other hops which was great!
