Default Hop plugs

Are recipe weights for hop plugs and leaf hops the same?

Yes.

But the results won't be the same.

To test this concept, next time you want to buy your girl some flowers, take them and smash them into plug-shaped masses and give them to her that way. Compare results versus giving her unsmashed roses.

Cheers

I don't think I've ever tasted a rose, crushed or intact, but I would imagine the smell would be about the same. What do you mean results are different?

A buddy of mine took some roses from my Bush last summer and mixed them with hop leaves in the secondary of a pilsner... that brew convinced me to start this hobby.
