Hello fellow HBers, I have a question about my hop additions, since I will be altering the kit instructions a little bit.
I am making Northern Brewer Belgian Tripel kit. Here's the link:
As it says, I will be using .5 oz of Summit for my 60 min bittering addition, and 1 oz of Saaz for my 1 min aroma addition.
My question is this:
I will be doing a full boil instead of a partial boil (about 5 gallons vs 2.5). Also, I'm going to leave out the 1 lb. of candi sugar and add it a few days into fermentation.
My question is, do I need to adjust my hop additions? There isn't a ton of hops in this recipe, so I'm wondering if I could get by just adding them according to the directions even though I'm not following all the other directions exactly (as far as boil volume and sugar additions).
