Anyone ever had one?
I listened to an old TBN episode tonight with Vinnie Cilurzo, who was talking about growing hops and then harvesting them to make wet hopped beers. Essentially you pick the hops straight off the vine and brew with them. He says they are amazing, and totally different than regular beer. Unfortunately you have to use six times as much hops to get enough flavor and IBUs from them.
Well, this got me thinking. I will probably have enough hops from at least my second year Mt. Hood and Northern Brewer hops to make something. If I get enough NB I could do a wet-hopped steam beer. I could use the Mt. Hood as aroma hops in that then. It sounds freaking awesome, and I've been wanting to do another steam beer, so I think I'll come up with a recipe.
On the show, Vinnie also gave out a recipe for a wet-hopped IPA.
I put it into promash, for uh, future reference. It has 47 ounces
of wet hops in it!
