I like to aroma steep my hops at the end of the boil - I used to remove the bittering hops (hop bags) & then add the aroma hops; but lately I've been leaving the flavour/bittering hops in to hopefully get a little extra (as making large late additions). I run my immersion chiller for a couple of minutes to bring it off the boil & aroma steep for 20 mins. But I've noticed a big rise in bitterness level. At what temperature drop do the hops stop adding bittering?
