Very cool information Chaz!  Thanks.

It's floating, most of it dry. Not soaking in the beer........


You can swirl a bit to wet things down.  Or next time rack on top of them.

Or, you can brew 5.5 gallons and fit it into a 5 gallon secondary...right to the top, which drowns the raft entirely.

Its purty. ;)

Hmmm, seems that a late chill Hopstand method for increased hop character
lacks real documentation regarding how to "exactly" calculate BU contribution. 

Thanks very much and some of the ideas gleaned from the responses include:

As for the hop stand. I do 30 minutes post flame out and I've been calculating it as a 20 minute addition using Tinseth and think that is about right, maybe 15 but not less.

My estimate from a taste test was ibu's increased from upper 30's to over 50.

I think Chris wrote an article about hopstanding about a year ago... posted it on NB's board if I remember right.

Thanks Dean, I finally found it.  Chris thinks about 10% more BU's with this method.

I guess I will find out what it tastes (as in extra bitterness) like to me.  She is just now starting at 56 degrees. ;)


why not just do a first wort hop?

 :) I had a little of that as well.  Here is my schedule:

FWH 1.0 oz Amarillo @ 9.4%
10     1.0 oz Amarillo
10     1.0 oz Simcoe @ 12.7%
5       1.0 oz Amarillo
5       1.0 oz Simcoe
0       3.0 oz Citra @ 12%

O.G. 1.070

I let it sit for 30 minutes before chilling @ around 190-180 degrees. 
Because of the continued heat, I was thinking that there would be increased and ongoing utilization...

Just wondering if anyone has been able to nail down BU's for this type of technique.

Those of you that have experimented with hopstand - adding flame out hops and NOT chilling for a while....
any words of wisdom or experiences on how to roughly calculate IBU contributions?

I suppose time and temp are big variables, but what does it taste like to YOU?

Man, you ain't kidding about the prices at the Tipsy superstore...

That place has got to be the gaudy-est most over built liquor store I have ever been in,
no wonder the prices are so high, they need to pay for the building! 
Who need to watch ESPN on multiple big flat screens and have piped in music outside whilst shopping for liquor? ::)

I won't be back there, but I did splurge for some Hop Head Red and a couple bottles of Old Crustacean.

Thanks again for the tips, next time I am over I can recall this thread,
and Vert, if I ever plan to head a bit north I will give you a shout.

Cheers eastslopers! ;)

Thanks very much!

Tom, not sure what I am looking for,
never really know until I see it.  Just looking for something new and fresh.
Mostly stuff with lotsahops.

Looks like Tipsys is on the way,
Guess I won't mind it being a little know how tourists are. ::)

Weather looks nasty but I better git home.

Can you hook me up with your favorite beer store?

I am looking to haul some stash back over the hill,
and was pretty disappointed with the selection at the Applejack.

Close to Lakewood is a bonus.

Thanks in advance. 8)

One cold black winter of a Colorado night
it snowed up on Red Mountain Pass

We warned everybody that the slide was runnin'
and that 550 was a mess

But out of the Plow Shed south of town
came a Blade with a flashing blue light

We told that boy whatevah you do
beware of the Riverside slide....

Oskar Blues set the trend.  Seems everyone in Colorado is doing it now.

I like to crush, and it makes the recycle bin way smaller!

Yup, still waiting on the Maharaja in an Fosters style oil can! 8)

That is tempting, hydraulics just sitting out front just waiting to be used.

I have one of those, I can't even use a wheelbarrow anymore :-\

If you can get a straight shot to the back yard, and not turn...they don't hurt too bad,
I say head off across that septic to the back yard and use it up!

Nice green BTW.
