In Topic: Does dry hopping add bitterness?

Today, 10:10 AM

It can't add IBU but there are other compounds in hops that provide bitter taste. Try your experiment above Mark and I reckon you'll discern bitterness in addition to hop flavour. Yes the boiled one will be more bitter but bitterness will be present in both.

When you chew a hop pellet, that bitterness isn't isomerised, dissolved alpha acid either but it's distinct.

Maheel that is both glorious and terrible.
Pnorkle, I think it was Yob who dropped a rubber band in his fermentor after pitching, and it turned out okay. See how you go.

He dropped an o-ring in a cube of mine at a case swap and it turned out infected.

Two sides to every story. Everyone else's and the miserable pessimist everyone tries to ignore. When fancy dress parties come round, I consider going as Eyeore but usually just end up staying home.

The plan is to make it in bulk and then I can change it up with hops

Not sure why bittering would prevent that or at least cube hopping (unless you have massive cubes). What post boil volume are you knocking out?
