    Thanks all - definitely sounds like I've missed the boat on the late additions. I'll try the
    hopstand/whirlpool next time (never really done that). I always thought the fermentation
    stripped the aroma...

    I've brewed a couple dozen DME batches so far; all of which have been some form of IPA. I'm
    going for a super hoppy west coast IPA. I started out using large amounts of hops (10oz) in my

    I'm planning to try the hop tea method myself. Going to use a french press, which I figure
    would be perfect for this method. My question; would it be possible to use the priming sugar
    water to make th...

    Without looking at it with you or having a diagram it's pretty hard to make meaningful
    suggestions. If I understand what you're saying; you want to activate the control box with a

    good results but I believe that makes the water softer and not suitable for some beers?

    I would recommend getting and sanitizing a blow off tube vs. the airlock. put the tube in the
    fermenter and place the other end in a small bucket with sanitize water. This should fit the
    same 1.25" ho...
