It's extremely hard to make that assessment.It's not just the amount of oils but the amounts of
different types of different essential oils that determines the potency of a given hop. You can
make a r...

Bitterness is created from hops when isomerization occurs, which requires high temps (that's
one of the reasons we boil our wort). Without high temps, the hop acids can't isomerize and
they don't beco...

I don't have much personal experience, but I did save an acetaldehyde-y beer and a fairly

That was my thought, i should have stated that i used a 20% acidulated malt grain bill, and

Well, doing a sour mash does not affect your mash efficiency at all. It can reduce your
pre-yeast-fermentation gravity but, as with a normal mash, all of the conversion (which is what
is measured by m...
