My AG recipes turn out "ok"; just "ok". Actually, they taste quite watered down. They smell great in the primary, og is good, they smell strong in the secondary, bottle them wait 3 wks then wammo, disappointment! I'm talking about american ambers and cream ales. My grain bills always consist of 10#. Should I add more grain to the recipes? More hops perhaps? I like to use goldings or clusters for bittering and dry hop for aroma; usually 1oz respectively for each. Please help! I am starting to really despise Jim Koch! (kidding, he is my hero)
