I am brewing a bitter this weekend, and I have become such a fan of overnight mashes, that I built a mashtun out of a very expensive, stainless steel, insulated coleman cooler. I will lose less than 5 degrees in 12 hours with this mash tun, enough about my baby.
I love me a nice hoppy, bitter. So I have been doing alot of first wort hopping and the results are nice, but now I am thinking of combining my overnight mash with mash hopping. I would expect that the 8-12 hours rest with the hops would yield a much better extraction of hop oils and other delicious compounds than the usual hour, but I have never done this before.
has anybody ever combined mash hopping with an overnight before or have an opinions regarding this technique?
