    Best hops for dry hopping clear American IPAs

    Clear meaning not NE. Yes higher ibu maybe in the 80s or 90s, but not necessarily west coast. Just more of a standard american IPA.

    Best hops for dry hopping clear American IPAs

    Hi all, I need to put in an order of hops and wondering which hops people like for dry hopping American clear IPAs. My gotos are amarillo, citra, and mosaic, and sometimes azzaca or Idaho 7. I used to do Galaxy but the last 2 lbs were unimpressive. I mostly order from Yakima hops but am open to...

    American light lager

    Yea, Motueka may seem like a strange choice for hops but it is like saaz with some citrus notes. That is what I had on hand one time and tried it, and it came out great. I think it helps brighten it a bit. One other note about this style is you want it carbonated as high as possible.

    American light lager

    Here is my go to for an American light lager. Key is that corn and rice are very necessary. I like the Cablecar yeast a lot too. HOME BREW RECIPE: Title: Pilsner Motueka Brew Method: All Grain Boil Time: 60 min Batch Size: 5.5 gallons (fermentor volume) Boil Size: 7.5 gallons Boil Gravity...

    Late boil / “flavor” hop necessary?

    Why would a tiny bit of oxygen hurt the hops post fermentation, but a ton of oxygen pre fermentation does nothing to them? I don’t get it.

    Late boil / “flavor” hop necessary?

    yea, that was one of the articles I read that got me thinking. I am going to test this out this weekend and skip the flavor hops. Doing a double batch so still deciding if I will split it.

    Late boil / “flavor” hop necessary?

    I was thinking, there is a lot of talk about post fermentation oxygenation hurting hop flavor/aroma. But what about the fact that we put these hops in at whirlpool then oxygenate the hell out of the wort before pitching. That has to be hurting the hops. What about adjusting the recipe for less...

    Late boil / “flavor” hop necessary?

    I often brew my house IPA. This recipe is most often (per 5 gallon) 1oz Warrior pellets at 45, then 2oz of various other hop pellets at 15, 5, and whirlpool, then a 3oz dry hop. The beers generally come out really good and well balanced, but dealing with that much hops in the kettle is a pain...

    What is going on with my IPAs?

    You don’t mention much about the taste. Are there any off flavors, bitey bitterness, or any other clue? Are you starting with RO water? That CaCl addition looks about double what I add to get those numbers from RO. Maybe it just needs time. Some take longer. How much of the hop trub from...

    Azacca Pale Ale

    I did an all Azzaca IPA back in March though I used warrior for initial bittering. I don’t generally experiment with bittering hops as I have had bad experiences. I hopped a little heavier and did a dry hop too. The brew came out deliciously fruity And went quick. Would definitely do again...

    Dry hop loose producing off flavor

    I typically brew American IPAs, reasonably hoppy, but always looking to get more hop aroma. The hop aroma is very inconsistent for me, so recently I tried loose dry hopping with fairly new galaxy hops from Yakima Valley In a couple of different batches. Both batches came out with a slightly...
