So this year I made a 10 gallon IPA batch and dry hopped one with .75 oz. Cascade pellets and the other carboy with .8 oz. of fresh picked hops. I believe they were Golding, maybe Chinook, but that's neither here nor there.
The point is that I really enjoyed it over the Cascade. It had a much broader bouquet that was less sharp and less lopsided in it's aroma than the Cascade.
Next year I want to bump that conservative .8 oz. up quite a bit and I have been thinking of ways to avoid a strong chlorophyll flavor. I trellised my hops on the west side of my house and the east side between the trellis and my house grew a considerable amount of healthy looking long and plump cones. I have plenty to be choosy in which cones I pick.
My question is, do the cones on the shady side or the sunny side have a higher resin to chlorophyll ratio. I've heard that the cuz grows more resins on the cones exposed to the sun, but would there be less chlorophyll contained in the shady ones, thereby counteracting the suns affect on resin production? If so, when trying to limit the grassy flavor would it be best to pick from the shaded cones?
