I like her!

I just got finished with a move as well, so I know how you feel. After reading IPA & Hops I really, really need to brew an IPA though. I think it'll get brewed here next brew day or the one after. I'm thinking FWH, whirlpool & keg hopping only.

From my recent reading 170-175 is the magic number for whirlpool additions.

Ive been reading your posts in the Lambic forum, because another priority once I get my pipeline caught up is to start a sour pipeline.

From what I understand, 180-185 is where isomerization occurs so lower than that will be ideal for only extracting the oils and not bitterness.

I did the FWH and whirlpool only IPA but I tossed the whirlpool hops as soon as I cut the heat so it sat above 200 for a while. It went from 212 to 180 in about 45 mins, then I started my IC.

For anyone interested, I brewed up a 15 gallon batch of IIPA using nothing but whirlpool hops, FWHs and (soon) dry hops. I'll be posting results there in a few weeks.
