    Can't believe no one's mentioned Great Lakes Brewing in Cleveland. Assuming you're traveling on
    the turnpike, which i think is a pretty safe assumption, you'll be passing right by it. It
    might be the ...

    Just put the hops in a paint strainer bag and then squeeze them after the boil. Use your
    sanitized stainless spoon or your sanitized hands, feet, armpit, whatever.....that seems like
    much more work th...

    Ok, maybe a really stupid question, but maybe a good one..... Anyone ever "rinse" their
    hops?Let me explain. I like to use whole leaf hops in my boil kettle with a false bottom (i
    just like whole leaf...

    Sorry, this is wrong. Try making a batch with only a hop stand. Throw hops in after flame out.
    Let stand 20 minutes. From 1 oz. of 5.5 alpha hops you should get about 20 ibus from this
    action.Per the ...

    If you're doing a hop stand, let wort sit with lid on for 20minsshould i cool it down to any
    specific temperature to let them steep (i've heard 150F), or just let it stand as is from flame
    out? thanks

    ok...... so 2 completely different responses, but i guess they're both right.... since i'm hop

  • Posted in thread: How long to let the hops rest? on 02-23-2013 at 02:23 PM
    I'm hop bursting with additions at 20, 15, 10, 5, 0 mins. How long after flameout do i let the
    hops steep before I start cooling? Thanks
