So the last brew i did was using Tettnang hops. I was just brewing a very basic rice lager, but when I put the first batch of hops in there was just a little fizzle rather than a boom. Ive got a pretty big brewpot, so i like to dump the hops in quickly and watch the whole thing foam up (small things amuse small minds). This last time there was practically no foaming, then a green tinge came to the surface and it was all over.

Does this suggest that the hops might have been a bit on the old side?

Ramp up the heat, more fire = more fun.
Also if it was in a hop sock they tend to minimise the boil effect.
