Title: Homegrown Cascade
Post by: davidgzach on October 24, 2012, 12:18:49 PM
All,

I have about 5 oz of homegrown Cascade in the freezer.  I'm thinking about brewing a Pale Ale and just tossing them all in at 15 minutes.  Thoughts?

Definitely use them in the last 15 minutes. Personally, I would toss them all in at flame out. Just bottled my fresh hopped Cascade pale ale the other day. Smells Amazing!

Use any bittering hops or no?

I'd shoot for 35-45 IBU's from something clean like magnum, then add your fresh hops all at flameout.

I would say no to using them as bittering hops.  I would suggest using some Magnum at the beginning and save those cascades for end of boil/ dry hop additions.

Just got in some 2012 Magnum so I think the plan is .75oz Magnum at 60, 3oz Cascade at flameout and 2oz dry hop.  Thanks!

You don;t want any of that wonderful cascade flavor? Just aroma? I'd use one of those oz's divided somewhere between 30 and 10 minutes. For me this would be more balanced than just bittering and aroma additions.

HMMM.  Euge, you make a good point.  Maybe 3oz at 15 minutes and 2oz at flameout and skip the dry hop?

Actually I think 2oz at 15 and 3 at flameout sounds better....

I'd also first wort hop with the magnum.

Really?  I've found that I don't care for Magnum for either flavor or aroma hops.

Magnum has an earthy undertones.

I love it (Magnum) as a bittering hop. So smooth and really neutral IMO. Magnum is a great choice for the paler lower BU beers.

I love Magnum for bittering as well.  I think Denny meant not to FWH as that will contribute flavor.  Correct Denny?

Yeah, they contribute a flavor I don't care for.  YMMV.
