You would hope so, it shouldn’t be bitter if you weren’t boiling and dropped the temp a touch when you added the hops, and then cooled it with cold water. It could very well be hop matter you’re tasting, cold crash well, give it a few days and when transfer don’t pick up the junk from the bottom of the fermenter, leave some behind. Cheers!

Beats me! Not sure what could have caused it, I put a L of cool water to drop the temp to 80c for the hop addition. I tested my tap water tonight and it's around pH 7.5 the beer tests at pH 5.2. I didn't do any water adjustment so I wonder if maybe being too high caused the bitterness

Have had this in the fermenter for just over 24 hours. Used 40g Simcoe, 40g Galaxy and 40g Cascade for the steep. Have 60g of each of those hops left. Should I do 30g of each of those on day 3 and then the same again a couple of days later or is that too much? I will cold crash and then bottle straight from the fermenter. Cheers

Yep sounds good, cold crash for a couple of days to drop out the hops. Bottle extremely carefully, its not really recommended to bottle an neipa, but just be very careful, no splashing, no shaking etc

Hello Bad Shephard hope its going well. I don't know if you have temp control but doesn't matter. If you want to use 60 gms of each then I would do it all at 3 days. Or 30 of each at 3 days and leave it at that. Then, if you have temp control push the temp up 2 to 3 deg for D rest until finished.
Sometimes adding hops late can cause unfermented sugars to converted and start more fermentation resulting in Diacetyl. By adding hops around the 3 day mark any extra fermentation and resulting diacetyl will be cleaned up at day 4 when you increase the temp for the diacetyl rest.
This is my understanding so take out of it as you will. Hope it makes a bit of sense. This process is called hop creep. If you dont have temp control then you cant do much about it .
Good luck and I hope it goes well. Cheers.

Thanks Gash and Finnroo. I realise that bottling an NEIPA is not ideal but it's the only option that I have at the moment. Will just have to consume quickly once they are carbonated! Unfortunately I don't have a temperature controller either, just using a heat belt at the moment and adjusting / turning off when I need to. Again, not ideal but all I have currently. Might just do one big dry hop on day 3 then. Have done late dry hops on my last couple of Pale Ale's without issue but were only 50g. Thanks again for getting back to me. Stumbled across your YouTube a while ago and learning heaps!

Brewing a familiar Dark Mild later today. (hint: Was the bastard tired? Or was he run over by a tire (tyre). No one really knows). One thing for sure. It will be a treat when done. Cheers!

Brew Day tomorrow, a simple ordinary bitter with my home grown hops. Rock n roll or what. Cheers lol
