Just wondering what your thoughts are on this? I know noble hops are traditionally used for this but what others? I wanted to use Chinook for FWH my Big Sur DIPA but read elsewhere that it could produce an unpleasant bitterness used for this?Any others to avoid? Your experiences?
I use magnum or nugget for all my bittering and also FWH but mostly magnum. Ive used chinook at 60min but not my favorite. I do use Chinook for bittering from say 30 minutes in big IPAs
I’ve used American variety such as Amarillo, Citra, and cascade without noticing any unpleasant bitterness. I do admit I’ve never tried it with chinook.
Me magnum. Or citra. Same here never did use chinook
I think we have to see what Voodoo's tasting notes say... FWH aren't suppose to be as strong as a bittering charge.. I think DannyBoy was a FWH'er.. How long will he be away?Sneezles61
OK so I placed my order with our host, I’m staying away entirely from chinook hops on this version. Using Amarillo, Columbus, and centennial as the only hops.
Thanks for everybody’s help!
I was hoping to see a deviant giving us a rogue report.. Outlaw land .. ifn you will... Sneezles61
Magnum and Columbus here. Think I used Galena once or twice. No problems from any of them that I noticed.
I am going with a half ounce of Columbus for FWH and another half ounce at 60 minutes. I'll report back on this....
