I am going for a light hop aroma in an American Wheat. For a 5 gallon batch, can someone give me a guess for an amount of hops to try at flameout? I was thinking about 0.5 ounces.
Yes - 1/2 to 1 oz. would be a good amount, depending on age, freshness, type, form. I tend to be heavy-handed with hops, and don't sub-divide below 1-oz increments, but you are clearly looking for subtlety - 1/2 oz should be fine.
0.5 ounces of saaz at the end really smooths out the flavor and adds subtle aroma to an american wheat.
Thanks for the help.
