planning to try this brew this w/e .. quick question .. I want to use galaxy hops .. I have 48grms . (4 packs of morgons , not my favorite way to buy them but i was in a hurry ) . so the question . should i add half at for 15 minutes and the other half at 1 minute same as cascade ? . I'm trying to achieve something vaguely in the direction of j,s hop thief ..

any suggestions will be appreciated . cheers . :evil:

The galaxy has a lot higher AA% then cascade so will make it a bit more bitter, maybe 10mins and 1 min instead, but yeah you could go half/half no worries!
Cheers!

Hey Gash,

I want to use the coopers tins as they are quite a bit cheaper at the super market than the Blackrock cans at my LHBS. Problem is they are pre-hopped (the un=hopped is dearer) and I'm not sure how to go about working that in with some fresh hop additions

Cheers

the cans are so lightly hopped i don't think it will cause you any problems .. this smelt really clean and good going into the kegs/bottles .. i have a feeling this will be a superb drop .. just now i had to fight the temptation to fast track a keg to the fridge ..
