Inspired by a discussion that early hop additions carry some flavor to the brew I decided to try an old school meets new school IPA. Mash hopped, FWH, and additions every 15m and then every 5m at 15m mark and then a big old hopstand. Sounded (and smelled!) great until I tried sparging… Stuck! Managed to finagle enough wort to boil and the resulting wort was within 2pts so I consider success but will probably not revisit mash hopping. I used pellets, maybe I should have used whole hops, but didn’t think much of it. Kinda funny, it’s been a loong time since I had a stuck mash.
Anyone else think early additions have some flavor?
