My current brew is a Newcastle Brown Ale clone, and I accidentally switched my bittering and flavoring hops. The recipe calls for this:
Target pellets [.8 oz] (AA 10%) - 45 minutes of boil
Kent Golding pellets [.5 oz] (AA 5.5%) - last 15 minutes of boil
Instead, I did the opposite
I'm still not really sure what the AA percentage means, but I'm gonna guess it determines just how bitter the hops are. Does this mean that my beer will end up having a weaker bittering than intended, and a stronger flavor?
Also, I'm not real sure how Target or Kent Golding hops behave, they may be completely different. Ah well, it will be interesting to drink nonetheless
