I want to make a fresh hop IPA, but don't know how to do it if all the hops aren't ready at the same time....
Same exact problem. I figure try it and see. I'm only going to do a 5 gallon batch, so if it's awful, at least not too much wasted. Besides, the most expensive ingredient, the hops, are going to be free on this batch!
