I am looking to make an APA with a heavy hop flavor that singes your nose hair with aroma. I have put together a hop schedule heavy on the late additions (30-0min), involving 200+ g (~8 oz) of hops. Is there a point (amount) of diminishing returns where the hop additions aren't going to noticeably affect the flavor/aroma? Have I reached it?
Yes, you can pass a point of diminishing returns but you are not there. It is a personal preference thing I guess. I made a batch with 5 oz under the 30 min addition(cascade) and I think its awesome but I think a lil more wouldn't destroy it, just be passed my preference.
