Citra and Cascade make a fine drop hop, hard to chose! Both are are famous for that!

so after the convo re US-05 yeast I cracked the shits and decided to have another look on gumtree to see what i could find And well it was my lucky day!!!! next suburb over i got a fridge in good cond for $50.
So i made room in the garage (full to the brim now) and cold crashed with gelatin my pale ale for a little over 48 hours and bottled it tonight. came out crystal clear and actually tastes pretty darn nice. its now back in the fridge with my STC set at 17.5deg to age.

The only concern i have is i didnt have enough carb tabs so i had to do a bulk prime for the first time. I used the Brewers friend's Priming calculator and going of the temp of the brew 10deg and at 16lt (i lost a bit in fermenter due to knocking it and mixing up the trub :blush: ) and it stated to use 70g of dex. I mixed that with 400ml of boiled water per you Vid.
Im concerned it may not be enough as beer smith was saying to use 110g..
should i be worried about under carbonated beer?

So I brewed this and it’s been carbonating in the bottle for 2 weeks. Opened one the other day for a tester and it was well carbonated. Buuuut it was verrrry bitter. Not sure why. Any thoughts why?

Not really, umm doesn't make sense with that small amount of hops, as long as you got the timing right and cooled the mix down immediately it should be fine.

Additions were right and cooked it down with cold water. Could my water chemistry have anything to do with it? Just did a Kosciusko and it also came out quite bitter.

too much sulphate will give a dry bitter finish to your beer.What salts did you add?
Ive just started learning about water chemistry and have noticed this. This artical is worth a read.Cheers

Quick update. Put a lime in the beer and it cut right through the bitterness. Still a bit upset about the original result. But I’ll keep at it. I looked at my water profile and it says it is in the “too malty” range. Could that have any impact on it? Even as an extract?

Its very strange.. and given what you say that its on the malty side anyway, makes it even more strange. Where abouts do you live? Give it some aging and the bitterness will subside a bit.
