Late Hop Help !!!!!!!

So I've been having an issue over the last few brews with my beers coming out way too bitter. (not too hoppy, just bitter) Been out of the hobby for a while and getting back going after a move. Seems like all my late hops are just turning into bittering hops.... I'm curious to see what other folks are doing time wise from :15 to fermenter.... Am I waiting too long for things to settle in the kettle?... whirlpool too long? When do folks go to chiller? time / temp? I think I'm waiting too long before chilling and I'd just like to see what other folks are doing .... Thanks !!!

As you have noticed, late hops and whirlpool hops can add a ton of IBUs.

AND, as you can see, this forum is totally dead, it's very unlikely you will get much help here. Try Homebrewtalk forum instead, a lot more traffic there. Reddit is okay but generally less stellar quality feedback. No other forums really have good traffic anymore.

And finally... as luck would have it, I have developed equations to estimate IBUs from both boil hop and whirlpool hop additions. It's all here, two different methods, actually, see top of page, then square-root based approximation equations at the bottom of the page. Hope this helps you or somebody out there. ... 9bc1_o.png
