Well, it’s been a while since I posted, so here is my belated post of my 2017 version of my annual Eldercat elderflower IPA. This year’s has Chinook instead of Amarillo hops, so is Columbus for bittering, and Cascade, Chinook and East Kent Goldings as late hops, and in the dry hopping. I’m very happy with the way it’s turned out. This time I remembered to put the dry hops and elderflowers in a hop bag in the fermenter, so I avoided the problem I had last year of lots of debris getting bottled and causing loads of foam to form in the bottles when opened- which had some spectacular results, especially when the beer was not chilled…
