I made a batch last night and it has started fermenting in the primary. Upon racking to the secondary I plan on dry hopping with about 2 oz of amarillo. I want the beer to have a real strong aroma hops flavor so I was thinking of boiling up another 2 oz of hops for about 5 minutes to add when I go to bottle. Has anyone done this before, or have a better recomendation?

That'll work well. The more hops the merrier.

I've got an all Cascade APA that is ready to be bottled, after inputting the recipe into beer smith I realize I only have about 7 IBU's.....oops.

Haven't brewed in about 5 years..

It'll still be tasty, just want to see if I can punch it up a bit. I'm going to boil another 1 oz of cascade for 60 min at bottling, then add the priming sugar for the last 5 min, and let 'er rip!

That's pretty cool, haven't tried one. Not sure a pellet would look as good. I might try something like that when I'm ready to brew a big beer

Lupulin Maximus is oretty good, but after I pour one, I give the bottle a good shake and the hop come falls out. After marinating for a couple weeks, that cone looks pretty gross. Kinda reminds me of preserved butterfly pupae from science class.

*cone falls out. That's the second time I've done that.

I put 5 hop pellets in each bottle of an IPA last year. Result: Entire contents expelled in huge foaming gusher when bottles were opened. Wont try that again.
