Local Cascade Hops
« on: March 22, 2011, 02:14:23 PM »
Hey everyone!  I'm going to brew up an American Brown Ale and am going to use some locally grown hops here in Nebraska.  They are whole hops and I have never used them before.  Do you still weigh them out per oz like you would pellet hops?  Is there anything I need to know or do before adding them?

I assume they've been dried?  Yeah, just weigh them out.

Hopefully they've been stored well.  Preferably they've been vacuum sealed (Zip-locked bags generally aren't good enough) & kept cold & dark.  If that's the case, just weigh out.

If they smell "cheesy" they've been oxidized.
Beer...Now there's a temporary solution!
