Wet hops first time brewing with
« on: September 15, 2022, 11:18:33 am »
I am brewing with wet hops for the first time tomorrow. I believe they are cascade (my friends hops not mine). I will be using them as flavoring hops. I expect to use 7 ounces at 10 mins. about how much wort can I expect to lose to absorption? 5ish gallon brew. I generally brew a little over 5 gallons so I actually get 5 gallons of beer.

My guess is that you'll lose a close to a half quart of wort in that 7 ounces.  Really depends on how dry they were when picked.
