*Sorry did not know where to post this so please moderator relocate if needed*

I have recently brewed an IPA and feel it will be kind of weak as there wasn't much boil time with the hops, so i was wondering can i boil up some hops with water and add to fermented wort and let sit for another week?

brewed 1/26 stopped fermenting Tuesday/Wednesday.

sorry for newbie question

thanks in advance for any info/feedback

cheeers

Joel

1 OZ OK Pilgrim (Pellet) boiled for 45 Min

2 OZ Cascade (Pellet) at last 4 min of boil

those were from recipe

on my own accord i added 1/2 OZ of Simcoe (pellet) right in the middle of that 45 min boil
and also dry hopped 1 1/2 OZ simcoe (Pellet)

I have about 3/4 OZ Whole leaf or cone (I think they are same) was thinking of boiling that and adding to wort.

I am a Huge hop head and love big hoppy bitter IPA's

thanks again.

Yeah. What kind of beer is it? I think your best bet is to add another ounce or two to the dry hop and try more hops in the boil next time.

would it ruin beer if i boiled hops and added to beer?

or just not a safe call?

thanks

It wouldn't ruin the beer, but it would water it down. It'll be fine, just dry hop it some more and RDWHAHB!

It is more of a question of hop utilization than being safe or not. If It were my situation (been there, done that, no t shirt) I would dry hop with what you have this time around. It is a learning procedure. I'm sure it will be quite drinkable.
