I plan on breaking up a 5 gallon batch into five 1 gallon batches and hopping them each with only one type of hop. Should I choose 5 bittering hops and boil each mini batch for at least 60mins, or should I boil the entire 5 gallons and add a subtle, crisp bittering hop to stand up to the malt, then break it up into small batches and add 5 different flavoring/aroma hops? The second option sounds like it might require less work. Anybody done anything like this? Any hop suggestions for either approach?
