I’m struggling to understand how this would add noticeable bitterness to the beer personally. It would be the equivalent of adding 2 grams of hops to 2 gallons when you factor in it being added back to the finished beer. I figure you’d be far better off adding a 1/2 oz of hops when you bring the full volume to a boils and letting it rest for 10 minutes before cooling to your whirlpool temps. Ibu are volume dependent as well8 grams of Columbus in 32 ounces of RO water boiled for 30 minutes. Then I strain the hops out via hop spider and/or funnel filter and add it to the fermenter.
