Checked the gravity and it was the same as right before I put it in secondary and got it

for the best when...

I made a lager 7 weeks ago. Had it in primary @ 45F for 3 weeks and then moved it to a

I actually don't mind the flavor as I am that hop-head you speak of! My lady-friend did not
enjoy it one bit, though. I don't mind drinking it, but it does seem much more bitter/hoppier

It will make a difference, but possibly not as much as you may think. Because the grain was
