Indeed. What about that IPA. Did time give it the carbonation that it needed? Let’s take a look.
As you can see there is no head on this beer. So where does that leave me?
Well, it’s actually fairly tasty. There’s a strong nose to the beer, despite having no head to it. Although it’s flat this IPA does taste pretty good overall. But because there’s no fizz, there isn’t any effect to offset the bitterness of the beer or clear it away. Unfortunate, but there does seem to be a solution: Potato chips.
That’s right. What other snack so rewards having another right after you’ve drank some beer to wash the salt out of your mouth?
That said, I am adding bottling sugar to my recipe checklist to ensure that I add that to the beers. I’m not sure if I forgot to put in the bottling sugar in this batch, but better safe than sorry and if it improves future beers, the small reminder is worth it..
