    It's been about 3.5 days and I'm not seeing any bubbling. I'm using my new minibrew conical
    fermenter for the first time, so hoping it just doesn't have a super tight seal or maybe the
    blowoff tube is...

    Brewed up ~11 gallons of this on Saturday. It's in the conical now :) I'm thinking I might
    throw some lemons in the mix at the 1 week mark to give it a little kick. Thoughts?I love this
    beer and I hav...

    I'm assuming your hops are fresh and stored airtight in a freezer?You are right. I have a small
    freezer in the brewery specifically to store my hops. Not all, but my common hops I vacuum pack
    in porti...

    What are the specific water profiles you have tried? I'm looking for actual mg/l values. What
    is your pH doing for the hoppy brews? Are you employing hopping practices such as fwh? Are you
    dry hopping...

    Do your customers complain about the same tastes you describe? Is it possible that you're being
    your own worst critic?I never noticed these tastes you describe in my homebrew IPAs, and I
    don't do anyt...

    Sounds like two different issues. First, is the vegetative aspect. Second, the crispness. I
    have found vegetative qualities from a couple of IPA's early on--the type of hops, quantity,
    and time all pl...

    Have you tried different yeast strains?Yes, wet and dry yeasts. I tend to do US05 on most
    stuff. However, I've used a number of different wet yeasts.

    I'm a seasoned homebrewer. I've won Gold for my DIPA at Beervana. I hate my IPAs. They always
    seem to have a very green vegetative finish to them that commercial IPAs don't seem to have.
    I've varied m...

    Welcome to Brutus brewing. I love my rig (HAL is it's name) and recently changed to RTD temp
    probes from K type thermocouples. When I changed I had a couple miss steps by selecting the
    wrong RTD on th...
