Mash Hops vs. FWH

(1/4) > >>

dhacker:
For this year's Tennessee Brewfest, I'm planning on cloning  all commercial beers. (10) At least one of the recipes I'm entertaining (Pliny) calls for mash hops. I've never used hops in the mash and was curious how this differs from First Wort Hopping?

Can it affect the pH level in the mash?

denny:
I tried mash hopping 3 times before deciding that it added nothing to the beer and was a waste of hops.  I really don't know about it affecting pH levels.  My WAG would be not much if at all.

Denny . . as in nothing at all, or nothing over FWH?

denny:
Nothing...no detectable effects at all.  I used them in 3 recipes I'd brewed often and was very familiar with and I couldn't tell any difference from not using them.

dhacker:
'ppreciate it, Sir . .
