emergency hop question!!!

Postby lgtg » Mon Feb 12, 2007 8:34 pm

Making half batch tonight, grains are steeping on way to boil. Directions say to add 2oz boiling hops, after 30 add 1 oz finish hops. This was for a five gl batch.

I have two packs of pellets, Williamette (making a stout) do NOT want to over hop here, I know to make the half batch it would be half of what the directions say to use...BUT, do not know what the nominal weight of this pack is!!!

Anyone out there with a best fit??

was it a self-contained kit? if so, i would guess they'd give you exactly the amount of hops you're going to use--3 oz. if you bought the hops elsewhere, then you'll have to guess.

if the full batch is a partial boil, your utilization will be better with the full boil partial batch. skimp a bit on the bittering hops if this is the case.
