I have been experimenting with some of the newer hybrid hops lately, breaking away from the more traditional. Doing the same mash; just using a different hop. last batch was using Simcoe. turned out pretty good, though I am not a super hop head, just trying new ones out. My current batch used 2 oz. Palisade (1.5 in the boil,.5 dry). seems kinda funky. 44 IBUs but really bitter, like grapefruit. Dont know if it's just my bad taste for hops or is this one actually raunchy.
Next one is gonna be Citra. I'm just not sure How much to dry hop. Should I throttle back on the IBUs? What do you think?.
