That's some pretty darn soft water. Looks good. Are there chloramines/chlorine in your water? I
couldn't tell. If so, that can lead to a nasty off-flavor.

Yep. There's an article somewhere on HBT (or maybe it was BYO or Zymurgy) describing some
experiments done by pro Brewers re different temps for the hop stand and different things
happen at different ...

That's pretty much what I did for my last IPA, and I plan on doing the same for my next IPA. My
schedule was: 1 oz of bittering hops at 60After the 60 minute boil, drop the temp to 200 and

3711 in the mid-60s worked great for me. That's the one that, if I remember the phrase right,
