I feel the same way.. hops have ruined me. I have a beautiful batch of BM's Kona Fire Rock Pale
Ale, that my non-hophead friends are loving. All I keep thinking is.. it's tasty, but just not

:mug:HG.I also overdo hot peppers, coffee, and strong flavors in general (sometimes meaning
SALTY). I am going to try no coffee, beer or added spice or salt for a month.Ha ha, I was just

This will kill his hop flavor! Cool that wort as quickly as possible or the precious
flavor/aroma oils will disappear. Read Jamil's article! Plenty of IBUs even at 15 minutes if
you use extra hops.Jee...

OP is using extract.Am I missing something? The op is talking about a 15 minute boil, that's

Have you experimented with the amount of time steeping? Seems like less time than a full 60

This is the device I got from Williams Brewing. Maybe used it 15-20 times, then it had a smoky
meltdown. sad, since it at least had me convinced that I was sanitizing my Oxy caps without

I had a hand-held UV lamp I bought from Williams Brewing I used to sanitize my oxy beer caps.
