Agreed - I have dry hopped half a dozen batches and thrown the hop pellets right in and have
never had an infected batch.

I love this beer and I can't wait until its release again this year. I just ordered ingredients
to make a clone - looking forward to sipping on it during football season... It makes the end
of summer ...

Bump^ - still searching. Brewed Northern Brewer's Black IPA this weekend. Anxious to see if
it's anything like Yakima Glory/Twilight.

I agree about the bubbles - I should've added that a nice krauzen had formed after about 24

he turns over...

I'm from New Jersey. If you say you need Camden Tabs in NJ, someone is likely to try to sell
you crack. However, if you're talking about Campden Tabs, that's a different story...Oh, and

I just had this beer for the first time last night - funny coincidence. Mine did not have the
overcarbonation problem at all. It was carbed just right for an IPA. I like it at first, but
then as I dra...

The problem lies in getting the "right" amount and getting the fermentation to start quickly.
The longer the struggling yeast takes to reproduce to get that right amount in an under-aerated
wort, the ...
