Will hops make my beer too bitter?

Bitterness in beer can be quantified using IBU (International Bitterness Unit). Typical Indian beer would have an IBU from 5-15. The bitterness in a beer comes from the hops, the water (calcium, sulfate and magnesium ions), and boiling of hops (isomerization). We recommend you to use Tinseth’s calculators to help you adjust your IBU based on the hops you have. The link has various hoppiness levels for several styles of commercial beers.
