I wouldn't use fining agents for an IPA. But that's me, I might be a minority, but I feel like
it takes away some of the taste I would describe as the taste in high cohumulone-hops, sort of

Posted in thread: How to fix a slighty overcarbed beer? on 04-19-2015 at 05:19 PM

I've never brewed nor bottle conditioned a Hefe until now. (Actually its a Dunkelwiezen but I
