I made a 5 gallon batch of an AG beer and used to much hops( to my taste). I was wondering what the least amount of hops that could be used in a new beer to blend with that beer. would be a low alpha hops around 3 -5 aa
Battle Axe brewing
The least amount would be zero.
Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. It'll teach you to keep your mouth shut.
You can make a brew with no hops if you wish. It depends how much you want to tone it down.
How long have you aged it for?
the beer i am blending has been ages for 6 months, i was under the impression that no hops would cause an issue because hops adds preservatives and helps fight bacteria.
think I will just do 1/2 oz saaz and 12lb 2 row
So do standard sanitisation precautions.
Hops help as do lots of other factors.
alright thanks i just didn't wanna go to low on hops and have some issue that i could have prevented i got yeast cake to pitch onto so that should help also.
