Newer brewer here with a Grandfather and a fermentation fridge. Im trying to nail the NE IPA game.. but they end up too bitter for my taste… last one consisted of Citra, Nelson and Mosaic. 50% of the hops was added during "flame off" in a whirlpool.. the hops had 30minutes contact with the wort before cooling(took about 20-30 minutes). The last 50% of the hops was added 4 days prior to bottling. I did not use hop socks and because i was in a bit of a hurry i didn’t have time to cold crash so that the hops settled in the bottom of the fermenter bucket. I siphoned the beer (below the hops on top) into my bottling bucked and bottled from there. The beer tasted good, but i think the bitterness is killing some of the finer tropical notes. I tried a DIPA from Trillium today and it was not as bitter as my beer. (my beer was not a DIPA though and ran in at 5.6% ABV) Am i doing something wrong or can i tweak something? Any tips is appreciated.
