    Makes me wonder.  If I brew up a cream ale I could probably do something like this right at bottling time.  It'd be a 2 - 3 week dry hop, so maybe use a little less hops.


      Interesting. So how many different hops will you try?

        Hmm, very interesting indeed!

          Not sure.  I doubt if I will ever do what this guy did.  The minimum purchase amount for hops is an ounce.  I can't see myself buying 10 ounces of hops just for this experiment.


          What I could do though, is try them as I buy them.  Maybe just a couple bottles at a time.  That may be worth doing.  I have a base pale ale recipe that I use to try out hops.  Each time I brew it I use a single, different hop.  So I am doing something similar to this already.


            I need to read up more on the different hops. Drinking a Sweet Water IPA and really like the hop aroma and taste. They used a Columbus and Golding, I've used neither. My one and only IPA was brewed with Simcoe, big fan of the Caldera. It'll fun to experiment with different hops.
