Title: Fresh Hop Recipe
Post by: saintpierre on August 23, 2012, 06:48:39 PM
I am looking to harvest my first year Cascade plant.  I estimate my harvest will be about 2 pounds (wet weight).

I was thinking of keeping the grist very simple either MO, pale malt or 50:50 blend. Also, I wasn't sure if I would have enough hops so I was thinking of using up the last bit of magnum hops for a clean bitterness to try and let the fresh hops shine.

Anyone have a good fresh hop recipe they would like to share or any suggestions?  ???

I think you are dead on. use the magnum for bittering and split the fresh hops up at 5, 0, whilrpool (or halfway through chilling) and maybe some 'dry' hops. it the equivelent of about 6 oz of dried hops.

go for all MO why skimp on the homegrown right? I would mash super hot or use a little crystal or munich maybe but that's all up to you.

Fresh/wet hops typically weigh about 4 times more than dry?
