So I guess the question is, hops lose their ability to bitter before they lose their flavor or aroma? I should still get good aroma out of these not so fresh hops that were not so fresh to begin with?
I was only going to use 2oz, but ended up adding the additional 3oz of already opened hops. So for 10 gal of 6.5% IPA with estimated IBUs of 110, I'm using 5oz of 6.4% cascade hops to dry-hop.
