so i brewed a tripple a few weeks ago and tonight it hit is FG/TG of 1.013 from 1.077. its gonna be a nice stong beer. great taste, but one thing: i am only at about 19 IBUs. i was reaching for 25 or so, not sure how it happened. prolly due to inexact amounts. anyway, is there anyway to bitter this tripple up? its not a big deal. i just was wondering if there is a way to retro-bitter?

1/2 oz. of any bittering hop in a quart of water boiled for 60 minutes will give you the maximum load of 90 IBU. Do the addition to the wort by taste.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

This is a hop extract. Many commercial brewers use this to cut down on the loss of wort due to absorption by the hops. I have used this stuff to salvage a number of beers. I have even won medals with beers with a little of this added.
