i have a large volume of fermented English IPA. its too far on the malty-side for my taste… I want to add hop bitterness to balance the beer out. my idea is to blend a small amount of incredibly hoppy beer to the large volume of malty beer to hopefully achieve that balance.
can 1 gallon of 1.040 beer, hopped with 2oz of warrior, boiled for 60 min really absorb 200+ IBUs as Promash tells me? I understand that it is hard to taste more than 100 IBUs but can this method give me a bitter little beer to blend with the 18 gallons of malty beer to have this effect?
im curious to hear people’s thoughts on this
