American Wheat beer and cluster hops

I have an extra ounce of cluster hops that I don’t know what to do with. The NB wheat extract kit that I ordered came today, so I was wondering if I could add the clusters at the end of the boil to get some more aroma. Any suggestions? Or should I leave the kit alone and use the clusters somewhere else?

Depends on what you are shooting for with this beer. Its not totally out of style for an American Wheat to be a little more aggressively hopped. But, who cares too much about styles. If you like hop forward beers you could add a little at each stage to bolster the hoppiness.

So would you do .5oz at boil and .5 at 15 min left?

Personally I’d use the cluster hops elsewhere.
