  • Posted in thread: Why doesn't the hop character of my beers taste the same as commercial beers on 08-13-2014 at 06:05 PM
    Other people may not have had the same experience, but I have not been able to get good hop
    character in my bottle conditioned IPAs. Only the keg conditioned IPAs have come out as
    expected. Once I had...

    I did the deep clean after the 2 bottled beers with delayed head creation. I had the same
    thought as you: Maybe something oily caught in the plate chiller was creating the problem.I
    once added grapefr...

    The last 2 beers I brewed and bottled have both suffered from the same strange issue. After the
    normal 3 weeks or so, the beer has the expected level of carbonation. The bottle hisses when

    I fermented in a 1/2gallon growler once before. I stopped right when the neck started to curve
    in, and i think that was about 0.4 Gallons. So with 10 growlers, you might want to shoot for
    closer to 4 ...

    Thank you for the replies. It is helpful to see that someone else has also experienced this
    specifically with hefeweizens. I never heard about filtering and bottling hefeweizens with
    lager yeast. That...

    I brewed a hefeweizen back in July. This beer was never spectacular, but it was a decent, easy
    drinking hefe. Last night, I opened one that had been sitting in the fridge for a few weeks,
    and I could ...
