Hops are almost ready. I'll have around 8 lbs. of fresh Cascade hops available shortly. Nice aroma already. I like a good APA, etc., but have never used "wet hops" before.

I brew up to 12.5 gallons at a time. I know that you can lose a lot of volume to hop absorption.

Suggestions welcome.

Thanks,

Dave

Maybe someone can point me to a similar thread? I can't seem to find one with a search. Maybe I'm just stoopid.

I just harvested a bunch of cascade and brewed up an IPA. Here's the rx:

6# amber LME
1# light DME
8 oz started WYeast 1056
8 oz Carapils 20 steeped
5 oz fresh Cascade at 60
5 oz fresh Cascade at 15
1 tsp Irish Moss at 10
2 oz Centennial pellets for 7 day dry hop after primary fermentation is done

OG was 1.055, dry hopped at 1.012

The samples tasted great. It's still dry hopping but it looks good. I chose pellets for dry hops as opposed to using any fresh hop because of the lack of sterilization factor with wet hops.
