My buddy gave me afew lbs of Amarillo. Smelled fine when i picked them up brought them home and brewed not to long after.
This afternoon i drank my 1st bottle…awful i had a smell of diesel, which im sure comes from the amarillo hops being old and on top of this i had a killer head ache for about 2 hours. As i can recall every test i ran was good but i did not record the gravity or the alcohol %.
What could have happened?
Tonight i will be brewing the same recipe to see if i can get the same results but this time i will be recording all data.
