I don't have the bittering hops for my brew (Warrior) I just mashed in.

Going to use the 7g of CTZ I have on hand and some home grown Chinook cones to sub 15g of Warrior, probably another 7-10g, not to picky on biterness for this one.

Should I remove the bittering hops after say 5mins to reduce any off flavour from the cones,
I assume all the oils will have broken of the vegetal matter by then?

Am I just being paranoid, they weren't the most amazing hops last harvest of the batch, never used whole cones as bittering additions.

Quick yes or no appreciated!

Probably too late now how did it go? Brewed with home grown hops a lot I rate my Chinook around 9% AA. Have used them for all boil time additions.

Threw 11g whole chinook in and pulled them out after 20mins + the ctz. Lots of 0 and whirlpool so bitterness will be fine, only a very pale session ale type brew. Experimental Taiheke brew more than anything, tastes ok into the ferm. Thanks for the reply!
