Well, finally got around to bottling the fresh hop IPA. I was originally going to rack it to a secondary about a week after brewing, but that didn’t happen. I still had the hops, so I made a hop tea out of them and added that to my bottling bucket before I transferred the beer.
The beer? Well, it had a different odor to it. Not like bad- just like…. green. Like grass. Or something.
Final gravity came out to 1.014, for about 7.8% alcohol by volume. I tasted it too, not sure how I’m going to like this. I’ll be sad if this doesn’t turn out.
