    Hop aroma before fermentation?

    So I'm batch #5 since getting back into brewing about 2 months ago. Overall been happy with the results, but I've done 2 Pale Ales that I thought would have more hop aroma on them, with it being basically non-existant. I thought maybe it was recipe related, so today I brewed another batch with...

    Aroma fades away by itself ?!

    I dry hopped a beer in the primary fermenter with the 'magnet' method, putting the hop and a piece of metal into a hop bag, then let it stay on the wall of the primary fermenter with a piece of magnet. I only let the hop bag drop into the beer when it stops bubbling, so that I can avoid oxygen...

    Will adding Gypsum improve the Hop character in my beers?

    Hi all. I'm just started drinking my 4th brew which was a SMaSH with Maris Otter and Mosaic. I'm really happy with the results after having to toss my 3rd batch for some really off-medinal flavours. A mix of building a fermentation chamber to keep my temps level and using camden tablets seems...

    Not Your Fathers IPA: Brewing IPAs Reminiscent of Todays Greats

    I, like others, have noticed a commonality among today's new and popular IPAs. It seems that the whole IBU Arms Race of the West Coast is finally subsiding and giving way to a new type of IPA. These IPAs all seem to share several characteristics: They have an intense, and almost juicy, hop aroma...

    DIY Basic Hop Trellis For Under $100

    Spring has finally sprung here in the great white North, and the first day where the temperature broke 60 gave me good reason to focus on installing my new (albeit small) hop trellis for growing this season's crop. If you're anything like me, your wife and property size/shape have a lot to do...

    First off, hey fellow homebrewers. I'm asking this question because I've been pondering it for years. I have been brewing more then 12 years, all grain, love everything about it. Batch per week average. My favorite beers have recently become NE IPAs, no surprise. I had a chance to drink many of...

    Well, it's hop seed harvest month! I know a bunch of us here do hop crosses, so let's see what everyone has to trade? For 2018, I have open pollinated seeds from a few local lupuloides accessions, from a few of my own crosses, and from Nugget, Brewer's Gold, and US Saazer.

    Copper equipment & Hop oxidation

    I wasn't able to find any explanation in searches so I'm posting a topic. In some discussions related to NEIPA and related intricacies of heavily hopped beer I've seen comments about copper immersion chillers and "wanting to go SS" which leads me to this question: Is it known whether copper...

    Batch #10 Pale Ale... I need some input on my recipe choices!

    This will be my 10th batch and I'm trying to brew up a really tasty hop bursted APA. I also took my first stab at creating a recipe based on all of the stuff I've learned over the last 3 or 4 months.
