That information IS in the wiki in much more depth if anyone wants it. And in several other threads. Such as the incredibly thorough Recipe Formulation & Ingredients Descriptions thread by Deathbrewer

But good job anyway, I just hope you cut and pasted it rather than spending hours typing it up from scratch.

We don't have a hop forum, but we don't have a grain or water or yeast forum either, and yet we manage to discuss all those things just fine.

We do have a "Fermentation and Yeast" forum.
+1 for a "Bittering and Hops" forum.

Pick up the BYO Hop Lover's Guide or whatever it's called. Good info. But a whole sub-forum on hops would be overkill...then again I'm a malt guy!
