Hop Temp Question

(1/2) > >>

chadchaney97:
Making my last IPA, I wanted to chill to about 175 and then do a hop stand, but thanks to my kiddos by the time I got back to chill it was 120ish.  I tossed the hops in anyway, any idea how this will affect the beer?

hmbrewing:
I'm by no means an expert - but, my understanding based on what I've read is that you obtain your bitterness from the boil. So, you are most likely going to get some nice hop aroma and flavor but no bitterness.

narvin:
You probably got less aroma from them at the lower temperature.  Not sure how much, though... probably somewhere between an hour-long hop stand @175 and an hour of dry hopping at room temp.  ;)

mmitchem:
Too low of a temp for isomerization to really come into play, but you will still get some aroma and flavor out of that. Tell us how it turns out :)

You get bitterness if you do a stand or whirlpool at >180F. Iso_AA is formed, but at a much lower utilization rate than the boil. Pelican Pub Kiwanda Cream Ale is made with all the hops in the whirlpool, measures 25 IBU. I do a Cream Ale like that, and it does have bitterness, alog with good hop flavor and aroma. Just saying.

Some others on the board have done stands at 110F or so for flavor/aroma additions. I have not.
