Posted in thread: How can I add some hop bitterness after fermentation? on 06-25-2013 at 06:32 PM
You could also pitch some lager yeast, which has the ability to break down longer chain sugars
than ale yeast (when you're looking for a workhorse to power through sugars you should pitch
lager yeast ...
