I can't place it, but there's something about your last picture that I liked more.

I haven't done it yet, but I read something about the oils/resins binding to proteins and lending a more flavorful bitterness. I wanna try and see.

Thanks for pooping on my parade man.

I would have to think it would do at least a little in terms of flavor. Cant say for myself,Ive never done it though. I do like FWH so far.
That's what I'm thinking too. Or at least hoping. I'm doing the mash hop in addition to the FW. The rest are late and knockout additions.

This is a really nice pale ale. Lots of hops flavor and a lingering dry bitterness. Aroma's nice too, nice amount of dry hopping in this one.
Weird,this is a local beer here. Glad you like it. I like it as well, they have a Hopipotimus Rye coming out again,its pretty good. As well as the farmer brown. I think the best beer we have around which is actually across the river in Illinois is a Bent River- Uncommon stout-its a coffee beer but its like the best coffee I ever had but In a beer.It smells better than every fresh roasted coffee Ive had.

Sorry dude,not trying to bring ya down.Just what Ive seen about mash hopping latley. You know though,the more the better sometimes-so any and which way may end up making a difference. Mash hop ,fwh,60 min,hopburst,whirlpool,dry hop,keg hop..the more the merrier?! Its not a waste if you can afford them-its still there in your beer,to what degree? maybe thats science or something.

Just finished the first bottle of my first AG brew, a home-malt, homegrown hops weizen.

It was a decent weizen. Better than I expected...first AG + homemade malt...wasn't so sure if this was a good idea...but the proof was in the drinking, and the drinking was AWESOME.

Cheers!
