I made the NB English Pale Ale. 2 ounces Kent Goldings for 60 minutes and another ounce for 1 minute.
I kind of heaped over the corn sugar at bottling time, using a heaping 3/4 cup measure.
Boy, is it over carbed. Boy, is it bitter.
I re-read the recipe later and saw they recommended low carbing.
I have taken to pouring in an oversized glass and stirring it up to release gasses before drinking. It seems to calm the perceived bitterness.
So is it my imagination or is there an X factor concerning carbonation level and perceived bitterness?
