I don't think diacetyl can comes from hops. It's metabolized by yeast from organic compounds in
the malt. So I suspect the faults you're tasting are either present in the beer prior to dry

I've experimenting with the addition of gypsum, calcium chloride and lactic acid to control the
wort pH prior to boiling. So far, these additions have helped greatly in reducing the body of

Another follow up. So I went ahead and experimented with acids and salt additions. On new
year's eve, I brewed an english mild. Although the gravity is lower than the DBA, the beer type

I brewed this last year and I think this recipe is not quite right. I think it needs more
bittering hops. The recipe above clocks in at 13 ibus while the Firestone website says DBA is

Well it's been a long time since I last posted. I've been so busy that I haven't brewed
anything since the DBA clone until today. I'd had a berliner weisse on deck for a long time so
I decided to brew...

I don't have a sample of original DBA, but I've had some in the last couple of months and I'm
almost certain my sample is a bit darker. But with so much chill haze, it's hard to tell of
course the fin...
