i haven't seen huge differences, but yes, you're correct. it's definitely not exact ( and sometimes not even close ). 2x c20 is usually between 1x c30 and 1x c50, tho. and as for the formula, no clue

^^ what he said ^^

Quite a different flavor and the color will be different, as well. I've never worried about color so much as long as I fall within the SRM. I'm usually trying to fall near the center anyway...or black as night.

since i don't compete, i really don't worry about it. i have a few criteria: does it taste good? does it look ok? and what's the abv?

Glad to help. And a word to all...I haven't forgotten about this thread...I'm just incredibly busy with the wine season at work and setting up the new warehouse. Updates will come, I just can't give an ETA at this point.

Has anyone ever tried dry-hopping an existing beer as a method of tasting different hops?

I.e., can I put some hops in my growler, go to the local brewery to get it filled, let it sit 48-72 hours, and then taste what the hops taste like in that beer style?

Am I talkin' da crayzee talk ag'in?

You will certainly be able to better understand what aroma and perceived flavors come from using various hops for dry hopping. Sounds like quite a bit of drinking!

I do it all the time, take a tea ball, or tea bag and throw a few pellets in per beer.

I also find that if you brew a mild IPA, or just PA, save them and each time you brew open one and add a couple of pellets of the hops you're using. You get a real good sense of aroma, and if you steep them in a little hot water/wort, you can get some flavor out of them as well.
