I think 10 months is fine. FWIW, I like about a pound of victory malt in my BW.

We'll just say he's wrong lol.
Though I believe there is flavor components to <15 minute hops. I actually just tapped an IPA that I used a pump to whirlpool with for the first time. I added 10 ounces to an 11 gallon batch at 170ish degrees. Wow is all u have to say. It's super sticky. I've done whirlpools with spoons but nothing compares to a continuous 45 minute whirlpool. I think I had 2 oz at FW, 2 oz at 60, 4 oz at 5, 10 oz at whirlpool, and then 8 oz dry hop.
Now that's called usin' em' up!
I said all that and yet filled two firkins with "wet" hops picked from my biz partners bines then make 8 gallons of "wet" hop IPA that had all the "wet" hops added at flame out (and some CTZ pellets @ 60 for bittering.) I'm not going to be super interested in drinking them but there will be folks out there who will be.
Personally, I do not like the vegal-like chlorophyll-ish flavors associated with wet hop beers. I imagine boiling them would increase those (to my palate) unpleasant flavors.
Yeah, I've concluded the same thing.
To be quite honest, if you have never used Equinox, you might use them as a single hop in a pale ale. It is a pretty dynamic hop. I think it's profile is similar to centennial on steriods with a punch of columbus dank added to it if that makes much sense. I've done a single hopped equinox APA and it was really good. Equinox has become one of my favorite hops, because of it's versatility being used only and working well with many others. It has so many layers of goodness!
Thanks for the feedback. I only ordered 4 oz which makes it difficult to do a single hopped beer. I suppose I could do a lower OG smash pale ale with magnum for bittering?
That's what I do for every batch of IPA that I make. I was just tweaking the recipe for my next brew, an IPA. It has 12.5 oz. I have gone over a pound, but my impression is that the beer tastes weird until it is about a month old then it shines.
Yep, I resemble that, too. 12-16 is about right for my AIPA tastes.
Interesting. Never heard anyone dislike 05 so much. Nice looking beer.Of course I'm also my biggest critic. I might just be used to the results of WLP 001 which I almost always use in this style. Very clean and drops out very quickly.
