FWH'ing IPA's is more of a homebrewer preference. It seems to be very well liked here at HBT, but it is not particularly taking hold in the commercial market for IPAs.... or come to think of it, even in the BeerAdvocate forums --> http://beeradvocate.com/community/th...hopping.69035/

Seems like the cost/benefit would explain the bolded words above. I love FWH but a production brewery doing FWH is looking a significantly more hops for relatively little distinct yield, I think.

Not sure I care what Beer Advocate folks think on the subject, but it is sort of a data point I guess.

jmendez29: Haha! I get it! :ban:
Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
