Brew #38: Transatlantic Triple C Bitter

February 7, 2013

Going for FWH again. Recently bottled brew #37 IPA and had a taste – never have I captured a hop taste like that before. Pure tropical grapefruit and the bitterness was very smooth. It was bitter (and hopefully conditioning will accentuate it more) but somehow in the background in a very aromatic way. FWH seems a good way to replace dry hopping (which I am not fond of doing and have done only once).

Using my house bitter grain bill together with leftover Columbus and Cascade hops from the IPA, together with some Challenger hops.
