Posted in thread: Why doesn't the hop character of my beers taste the same as commercial beers on 08-13-2014 at 05:05 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...

closer to 4 ...

lager yeast. That...

I brewed a hefeweizen back in July. This beer was never spectacular, but it was a decent, easy
