Hi Greetings-- I'm a new brewer looking for advice on wet hopping a Pale Ale.
I brewed my first 10 gallon all-grain batch of Pale Ale for neighborhood party, and my neighbor just told me he has some Cascade hops harvested but not yet dried. The pale ale is now finishing primary fermentation and I'd like to consider adding some of the Cascade hops to the Pale Ale secondary fermentation on one or both of the 5-gallon fermenters. I've never wet hopped so wondering about how much of the undried hops I should consider adding. My beersmith program doesn't seem to indicate that adding leaf Cascade to secondary will increase the IBUs significantly, and given its Cascade it'll mostly be for aroma.
Current hopping (for 10 gal batch)
* .57 Magnum @ 60 mins
* .87 perle @ 30 mins
* 1.73 Cascade @ 10 mins
* 3.64 Cascade @ flameout
Would you add the Cascade undried hops to Secondary? If so, how much? Advice appreciated- thanks for any thoughts you may have here.
