Ok, I have half to full pound of wet Cascade right off the bine, with more to come.
I want to brew on Monday so they don't go to waste, so ideas for a good brew. Looking to have a balanced beer, not too over the top.
What is a good base malt to start with, should I go smash or not?
Obviously I will be using it for late addition, maybe dry hop, or do I go 60 to flame out with just the fresh hops and see what happens.
I would use dried hops for the bittering, maybe columbus or warrior and then use the wet hops in the last 5 min/0 min hop bomb. Remember, you will need to use a lot more wet hops than you would dry so I would do a simple IPA something along these lines:
.5# Crystal 60L
1.5oz Columbus (14%) 60 min
10oz Cascade Wet Hops 0 min
This would put you at around 1.068 with 66 IBU which is a nice balance.
