who talked abiut "hop bursting" on here a few months ago?
 
I think it was DeRoux or Dude, but I'm not certain.

I haven't had any luck searching for the thread, either.

Anyway, if you remember this, have a link, or know about hop bursting, send me a PM please!

Search freedom ale...don't remember if I posted a recipe or not--but DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

It was a huge waste of hops, IMHO.

I thought you praised the flavor that batch in your post? :confused:

I'm about to do a Jim Nielsen's Hop Mothra, also my first attempt making a pilsner.

I don't think I ever said that. It was never a good beer, IMHO.

The flavor of the hops was good, but there was little to no bitterness in it. It just wasn't "right" IMHO.

Regarding DFH, I guess you could call hopbursting "continuous" like they do, but they do that for the duration of the boil, not the last 30 minutes like hopbursting. A 60-90 boil extracts much more bitterness from the hops, as well as flavor.

but, if you say it isn't that great, then I'll skip over the idea and brew my IPA like I did last time. :D

Bastage. :D

I tried dryhopping that thing, everything but adding that fake bittering oil.. Wasn't worth saving.
