Beer is my day-long obsession, joy and torment. Although I quite like going for walks with my kids, swimming, cycling, running, high power rocketry, photography, chocolate and coding....

Acetaldehyde is due to over pitching!?! Most of my brews have that, will have to stop the dried yeast starter then...

Thanks for the answer. The supplier also told me that they think they need longer than the packet says, 24 - 48 hours from just the smack.

comment Help With Hops…
Thanks to everyone for their answers, my main issue is that I can only brew about four times a year, so spending a few years experimenting will get frustrating, hey ho. @brewchez, I suppose the question was impossible to answer, it's just experience aqt the end of the day..

I appreciate that's the case, but it still doesn't help with knowing how much of variety to add. Or if like me, what combinations will go well togeather. I've had a few of the Mikkeller Single Hop IPAs and De Mollen Amarillo, which is single hop, but I still have no idea how to combine the hops to get the desired result.

I understand the theory of getting the correct IBU, I just don't understand how to get the hop flavour profile (for want of a better term). I have Daniels book on my amazon wish list, I should just take the plunge and buy it.
