I can't remember where, but I recall reading that adding hops before the hot break reduces some of the bittering qualities and the hop utilization. I wonder if the hot break proteins is what binds...

Thanks for the info. Consistency is big, so I'll keep doing it how I did at first and adjust in a couple months after a dozen batches or so if I think somethings off.

I would bet wild yeast also. Mold is usually green, white, red, or black. Some are dangerous, some aren't. Red or Black are the worrisome ones. Molds typically produce hairs or fuzziness.
