I have 10 gallons of German pils that I FWH with hallertau
be sure to let me know what you think. I am finishing up the second keg of a GP with Hallertau and Tettnang as the FWH.
It had been about 2 years since I had FWHed as I had actively moved away from this method, so I figured I would give it a go again to see if anything had changed. Nope, same result - I just don't like it, doesn't work for me.
This pils had much less hop flavor and much more hop bite than my last where I used a traditional hop schedule (same hops, yeast and malt bill, just switched my 2oz of 20 min Hall and Tett to FWH). Granted, not a scientific experiment in the least - lots of variables at play, but it was enough evidence doesn't make sense for me
to use it anymore.
I'm interested to hear what your impressions are, Keith, when you remember to do it next time.
