So I haven't been able to recreate my world famous Pedro's Lager correctly. It's the classic case of substituting hops the first time around, and not remembering what I put in there. DOH! The hop schedule was:
90min .5oz Northern
60min 2.5oz Crystal
15min .5oz Crystal
The dang lager tastes like a piney horseradish! I've tried filtering it, aging it, and nothing has worked. It still tastes like piney horseradish. This hop schedule has been duplicated across 2 separate 10g batches, so I don't believe it has anything to do with contaminants and BOTH taste like Horseradish. Would the Crystal or Northern hops give it that piney horseradishy type of bitterness?
Let me just say...the 15min crystal hops for aroma is DEFINITELY a keeper. It smells like heaven. But when you take a taste...it's just painful the difference
Thanks for the help guys! Prost!
