    rubbery aroma?

    Dry hopping question

    I have dry hopped several beers and the only problem I have come across is dry hopping for too long. I think that there is no real risk with dry hopping as long as you dry hop for 2 weeks or less. I like to like to shoot for about a week. Happy brewing!!

    what would you do about seedy hops?

    I got a couple ounces of whole hops from my LHBS and after using about half of hem in a batch I found seeds in them. What should I do? The only concern I really have is the weight being off because of the seeds weighing so much. Anybody ever come across this problem?

    5.2 ph stabilizer

    i asked the gut at my LHBS if that would be an issue and he said his understanding was, and according to the instuctions, you dont need the other stuff and still get ultimate utilization from hops and grain.
