    Fascinating topic! Thank you to everyone who did the work behind this paper, even though there

    I had a Leinenkugels imperial oktoberfest on tap a few days ago. It was very tasty and

    11 oz centennial dried. I've been surprised every year because they have a strong aroma but it
    doesn't have the big citrus punch I would have expected.35.6 total

    Water profiles would be a good place to look, make sure your mash pH is in the right range and
    that your sulfate levels are at 200-300 ppm. Another thing with hoppy beers in particular is to
