Hey all,

True beginner here. Got myself a Munton IPA as a bday present, and after fermentation for a week or so I am now ready to bottle.

My question is about the bitterness at this stage - the cloudy substance I have now primed, is that supposed to taste unbearably bitter (I took a sneakpeek)? I am asking as I added a stem of rosemary when adding the hops on day 4, and am now scared that's screwing up the beer :) (even though I though that was little for 23l, having read some warnings!)

Am I needlessly worried, or should I take action to compensate for the rosemary's bitterness? And then what should one do?

Thanks!

Give it some time. It's hard to tell what you have until it's been in the bottle a few weeks. The rosemary was an interesting choice not in a bad way.

All the Best,
