I tried the gypsum, it reduced the soapiness some, but not completely

I have never added anything to my water. I will try the gypsum an CaCl2 in the glass and see if that works.

Thanks for the input.
I ruled out the soapy glass issue by having it in several different glasses.
The beer only sat on the trub for 8 days, then I racked to secondary and added the second dry hop.
I think I will chalk it up to a combination of hop flavors that don't play well together.

All Grain Brewing / Soapy Flavor in New Zealand Hopped IPA
« on: June 13, 2013, 09:59:24 PM »
I recently brewed an IPA with all New Zealand Hops. This was my first time doing a hop stand. The aroma is great and the beer tasted great each time I tested it after primary, before each dry hop and prior to bottling. The soapy flavor developed after bottling. It has not really gotten stronger or mellowed as time has gone on. Any ideas what might cause it. Sanitation has not been an issue on any other beer I have brewed and I have never had this problem on another beer. I have also since brewed another IPA with the different hops on the same schedule and it turned out great. Could it be the combination of hops that give me that off flavor?
