Curious, after dumping out a couple ounces of dry hop out of several batches, if anyone has tried to salvage this seeming waste by brewing that day and using them for that batch---

There seems to be quite a bit of aroma left and I assume bittering potential is only mildly effected if at all... Even with all the best estimates of bittering values, without lab work, is a guessing game anyway, based on past exeprience of what we prefer...

Anyone try it? I am thinking of it as the price hops makes it worth the attempt.

You could also bag & freeze them for later use.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
