Hop Burst IPA
« on: December 01, 2013, 07:49:56 PM »
Just made an IPA with 10 varieties of hops.  Magnum for bittering and 9 varieties at 4 minutes.  Dry hopped .5 oz of 7 varieties too.   

Hope it comes out!

Be VERY careful!  If your alpha acid level becomes super-critical the results are unthinkable:

FWH with .5 oz Magnum.  Then Cascade, Amarillo, Cluster, Chinook, Simcoe, Perle, Willamette, Citra, and Calypso at 4 minutes.

Dry hopped with all the 4 minute hops except Perle and Simcoe as they were pellets and the rest leaf.

What exactly is the proper hop burst technique?
All of the hopping is done in the last 15 minutes, using a lot of hops, maybe 5 - 10+ oz spread incrementally over the last 15 minutes. Obviously hop bitterness is somewhat lower with this method, and therefore leaves a slightly maltier flavor up front, followed by the huge hop flavor from all the late hopping.

So the taste schedule follows the boil schedule?

Expensive at LHBS prices. Online by the pound makes it much more affordable.

My LHBS sells their hops at a blanket rate of $2.99/oz. Online will range, but normally I pay $0.60-1.50. I do have to bite my tongue when I see others loading up on hops.
