ehh,samples are pretty vague as far as outcome.Let it be,but I personally dont see what more hops can hurt.It will just be aroma though which will fade with time. It wont balance your maltiness really,your bitter is done and done with the boil.Shure you can mask some stuff with hops until it fades quickly. Although youd be surprised how they dry up and become differnet with bottle conditioning.

I'll leave it be. Probably should not have tasted. Lol. A few more days and then to bottle.

Day 10 on the Newcastle tastealike... 1.005 or 6 hydrometer will check again tomorrow.

Took a bigger taste sample... Yeah Its GOOOD.

No seeming infections or cider taste. Nice.

1.040 to 1.005 = 4.59 ABV

Hey Yooper do you have a simple tastealike recipe for Fosters ale? Thanks for your help.

Hydrometer practically bottomed out.... checked twice to make sure.... Bottled it into 2 cases of 22 oz bottles with 2 sugar balls per bottle. Im going to wait at least 2 weeks before refrigerating a few. My basement is getting cold... should I condition these upstairs in 55 - 75 degrees or downstairs in 35-55 degrees.

Upstairs ~70F is best for conditioning. After 2-3 weeks you can store them downstairs for as long as they last!
