I recently tried Green Flash Palate Wrecker and was blown away by how well they are able to make that beer (and pretty much all of their others) scream HOPS. I’m pretty sure that no amount of hops will get me that, I’ve tried.
So what I’m wondering is, if I were to buy a bottle and send a sample to Ward Labs, do you think I could get a report that told me exactly how they build their water? Brewing salts, pH… it’s got to be something that I’m not doing at home and it’s driving me crazy.
If I could make IPA’s like that, I’d die a happy man.
