Ok, so here's the story behind all this. I brewed an IIPA about 10 months ago. OG was 1.095 and bitterness at 110, I believe. I utilize a stainless hop spider. With the grain bill as large as it was I was only able to do a 5.5 gallon batch in my mash tun. I put my spider on the bottom of my brew kettle to do a FWH and forgot to take it off the bottom when the wort reached a good level.
Meanwhile hop dust from the pellets make their way through the mesh and are trapped underneath. They scorch during the full boil and I didn't notice until chilled and cleaning up. So, the initial tasting of this beer was horrible but I decided that I would just store them and see what happened. After about 8 months of bottle condition I and few friends decided to chill and try a few. Surficeit to say, they are absolutely wonderful. I've given a few to some of my "beer snob" friends and have had replies such as greatest beer they've ever had, awesome, unbelievable complexity, better than many of the commercial beers available, etc.
Now, with all that said I would like to reproduce it without scorching my hops to the bottom of my kettle.
