Edwort..... few questions as I am about to embark on this tonight:
1.0 oz Cascade 6.6% at 60 min.
0.5 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 30 min.
0.25 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 15 min.
0.25 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 5 min.
I want to go:
0.5 oz Nugget 13.00% at 60
0.5 oz Centennial 10.00% at 30
0.25 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 15
0.25 oz. Cascade 6.6% at 5
due to the fact of that's what I have on hand. Beertools still places this recipe 100% in the realm of an APA. Grain bill and yeast are staying the same because I am attracted to the fact that you can have this on tap in 10-14 days.
My brew partner says this:
One thing I wonder about is the short conditioning period with multiple hops... with a single hop I would not be concerned, but I am wondering if additional conditioning time may be required in order for the hops to properly "blend" together.... I have no idea, and I am not even sure if that makes sense - but it is something to consider?
Anyone have any ideas about this? I wonder about it because Ed's recipe does in fact use one hop. I have never read anything about this, or had this concern before.
I have no problem aging this longer if it is a factor, I am patient. Sort of!
