Here's a recipe I'm developing for a 'lower' alcohol, huge flavor IPA.
5 lb Crisp MO
4 lb Rahr 2-row
15 minute additions:
1/3 oz each Citra, Galaxy, Centennial & Mosaic
1/2 oz Simcoe
Possible Hop Stand (or I'll wuss out and do a 5 minute addition):
2/3 oz each Citra, Galaxy, Centennial & Mosaic
1 oz each Citra, Galaxy, Centennial, Mosaic & Simcoe
US-05 or equivalent
My question is about the hop stand - if I did it for 30 minutes, wouldn't my 15 minute addition be more like a 45 minute addition? And the hop stand be like a 30 minute addition? Or is this just a bad idea in the first place?
I'd like to get this right since I'm using some pretty awesome hops and don't want to waste them on a mediocre batch.
