Can you expound? Lately with all the rage of late hopping I’ve gotten away from 60m additions but feel that my hop flavor is thinner than I would like. My beers have an explosion of hop flavor since I use a ton of hops but would kinda prefer the flavor be more obvious/rounded/fuller. I am sure there are better descriptors… :cheers:
Not really anything scientific, but I noticed a difference in the ‘background’ hop flavor/bitterness of my IPAs when I switched from using Magnum to Columbus. They gave me the slight pine/dank I was looking for.
What do you bitter with now? Or are you skipping a bittering addition? I think the bitterness of hops can tend to bring out the flavor compounds in them as well, so if you are SKIPPING a bittering addition altogether (as opposed to a small charge of something high alpha), the beer may just be a little ‘thin’ tasting.
