late hopping my ipa.
I'm drawing up a recipe for an ipa that uses almost exclusively late addition hops. what do u think I'd get better flavor from at 20 mins, 1 oz simcoe or 3 oz cascade? leaf hops. (there's gonna be other late additions, just trying to figure if it would be better to do the simcoe earlier or later). Thanks
Do you mean that you aren't going to add any/much early addition hops?
I'd suggest going and looking at about a dozen IPA recipes. I like IPAs and have done a few. I'm not picturing...
Willing to share your recipe, or is it top-secret?
Um, yeah... that doesn't sound good at all.
I understand what you are trying to do. What hop you are going to use depends on the flavor you want to have in your beer. The Simcoe is going to have a pine flavor and the Cascade is going to be a citrus flavor.
EDIT: Sorry, I didn't even provide my opinion because I was too busy with my comments regarding narrow mindedness. I personally would go with the Cascade, but probably not 3 oz. Maybe 2 oz and then see where that leaves you. You might also consider first wort hopping where you aad some hops once you start collecting your runnings. If you're doing extract with grains then this can be approximated by adding the FWH addition upon removing your steeping grains and commencing the heat up to boil. FWH, based on studies and anecdotal experience, provides a smooth bitterness and unique aroma effect. Best of luck in your recipe development. Cheers! :mug:
There are a couple of great craft breweries out there, like Maine Beer Co., that are adding a hefty amount of whirlpool hops to a few of their beers in order to gain amazing aroma and about 50% of their total IBU content.
Reason being, these breweries are generally not ignoring hop additions from 90-20 min. in favor of exclusively implementing 15-0 min additions.
Big fan of FWH and Late hop additions. I like my IPA's to very floral, love a huge aroma with a smooth (read: not harsh) bitterness. This can be achieved through the methods discussed above. I try to let do a FWH addition, and second small addition at 45 and then everything else at 15 and on. I generally have the bulk of my bitterness in the FWH charge with the addition at 45 to round out the bitterness, and then really bring it home with all the late hops.
I am planning a Fresh Brett IPA with FWH and then huge additions at the end.
What about something like this?
