Ruination? - Light beer!
90 minute? - Your time has run out!
Pliny? - Please!


I hereby lay claim to having made the hoppiest beer in history! I welcome your stories to come knock me off my perch!  :D



Done.

My buddy Hop God has been brewing a beer every year for a while on 12/25 that calculates out to 1225ibus. I believe it has about double the amount of hops listed in yours. Its all about mash temps and decoction

He's also in Charlie Papazian's book "Microbrewede Adventures". I'm not sure the recipe is but there is a picture of the brew process and it looks like hop stew!

Did he have to run it through a wine press to get the beer back out of the hops?  ;D  Good Gawd!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

I have read of old British beers that used 10 lbs per barrel, which is slightly greater than 50 oz. per 10 gallons.

17 oz of cone hops in 10 gallons was soup as far as I was concerned.  50 is being brave, indeed.

Hop God's recipe is also in Randy Mosher's Radical Brewing.

I would at least taste it, but my bet is that it would be off the filiform papillæ scale of humulone perception if you know what I mean. Good Heavens!

Too much, my friend...I'm a hophead, normally, but that much hops?  Eek.
