Wet Hop / Harvest Ales 2012
Saw the harvest thread, but didn't see a wet hop one for 2012.
Post pics, recipes and experience wet hopping with your own hops.
Cascade & Centennial. Picked during the mash, added in handfuls during the last 10 mins of the boil, and during chilling sub 160°.
Krausen is covered in resin and lupulin. Smell is pungent and heavenly. Will pick the rest and add post-fermentation.
Two handfuls (approximately 5 oz.) every 5 minutes for 90 minutes of mixed magnum, cascade, centennial and liberty in a 10 gallon batch. 25 lbs locally malted 2-row and 2.25 lbs of locally malted amber rye. There were no survivors.
Where are you getting the local malt? I'd love to do a beer with locally sourced ingredients.
is there any wort in there lol? I did a harvest ale about 1 month ago. Kegged it last week. My advise so far is to "go big" with home grown hops. Mine didn't pack the flavor of commercially grown so next time I'm doubling my flavor / aroma and dry hop additions.
I did a Ranger clone a week ago. 10 gal batch with 20 lbs of 2 row, .5 lbs c120 mashed at 154. 6 oz of fresh chinook at 60 and another 6 oz at 30, 1 oz dried cascade at 10 with 4 lbs table suger. Another oz at flameout, dry hoping right now on another 2 oz cascade. Awsome easy drinking IPA.
(mash tun off for cleaning)
The malt is from Valley Malt in South Hadley, MA. Husband and wife opened up a couple years ago.
The pic with the chiller is after i ran the wort into the fermenter. 12 gallon recipe but collected maybe 9-10 gallons.
Was top cropping my yeast and couldn't bear it...had to pull a sample. Holy hops. Amazing...the finish literally tasted like I put a hop in my mouth.
You know how when you smoke a cigar, your mouth still tastes like the cigar the next morning? It was like that, except hops.
30oz of Cascade/Centennial from up the street.
9.75 lbs of 2-row and .75 of C-40 from down the street.
Yeast from 1 hour East.
Long live Cascadia!!
