I mash hop in order to reduce my hop load in the kettle. I can't say for sure if it buys me much but it does save me a couple ounces of hop trub in the kettle.

I'm gonna try this technique tomorrow with my Hop Bomb - mainly to reduce the amount of hops in kettle.

It definitely helps in that respect.

I'm kind of curious, is there a ph range where mash hopping is most effective? I mean if the ph is above or below a certain point does mash hopping lose its effectiveness? It seems like that would explain why it works for some people and not for others.

I'm surprised nobody has really tested out mash hopping. I'd love to hear what a beer with strictly mash hops and bittering hops comes out like.

Mash hopping is not as effective as you would think. It takes 90 minutes of boiling water to extract the full amount of bittering units in the hop. So if you added during your 60min mash you would not extract the same amount as if you did with a 60 min boil.

it's for bittering, it's for flavor and aroma.

The aroma would boil out of the wort if you added it during the mash.

supposedly, like with first wort hopping, it binds in a way that doesn't boil off. I know it doesn't make sense, but I do know that with first wort hopping the aroma stays throughout the boil.

I have some experience recently with mash hopping and the results have been very good.

Expect 10-15% ultilization.

The quality of bitterness and aroma is very good which is all that matters really.

I think that in a highly hopped beer the effect would be wasted somewhat.
