Mine is on tap right now. Side by side there is unquestionably a difference, but I am certainly not pointing to the recipe as the problem. I have had trouble with my IPA's at times with the hop...

I've never been terribly excited, at least on a consistent basis, by the IPA's I've brewed. The bitterness is there for sure, but the flavor and aroma just don't come through like I want. What I am...

I saw that delay time as well - I might just get the normal one and use some sort of dolly to move it around. Fortunately I live very close to Stafford where John lives, so I'll save on shipping.

OK - I got worried and took a sample. Refractometer says 1.051. It started at 1.057, so at least I know something is going on. I thought it would have gotten further along by now though.
