A similar question as how much hops do you think is the max worth to throw at an ipa and do you taste a flavor difference.Not sure I follow what you are saying. I get that these hops are more efficient at producing the true hop flavor with less vegetal matter/flavors, but Im wondering HOW peeps have been using them. Are people generally using the same dosages(ounces) as the regular t90 pellet recipes in order to get even more intense hop flavors OR are people generally using less dosages (because they are more "efficient" at delivering what we want - flavor) which would theoretically result in similar flavor profiles as the t90 pellets? Thanks!
EDIT: I would also like to see the total oil content of these products and not just the AAs as mentioned on YVH website. Unless, the total oil content is the same as t90 pellets? It would seem to me more than just the AAs would differ compared to t90 pellets? Just trying to best understand the product is all.
I would argue that if you use lupomax and use it to cut down on vegetal matter you will taste more of a difference then maximizing total amounts with it. Might be even better mixing it all up as Other Half does for example with their HDHC technique.
This all aside, I put 6oz lupomax only and get a very saturated pungent hop flavor out of it and suspect u can go lower then this and still be a very happy hophead.
