  • Started homebrewing maybe 12-15 years ago. Eventually became brewmaster at a local brewpub in central New Jersey. When that closed, I left that industry. With children, I pretty much stopped brewing. Now I'm getting back into it -- kind of like riding a bike.

    Give it more time. There could be any number of reason why the one batch still has a high

    difference than ju...

    much other than...

    I think your hop schedule is fine as is.
