    We have determined that Simcoe, Centennial, and Cascade will all be used for the 10 minute addition. (Deja vu.) Now we'll determine how much of each. In this poll you should click on three checkboxes. One choice for each hop variety. Do not click on more than one choice for each hop. If you want an amount that's not listed for a particular hop, write it in, and don't click a checkbox for that particular hop. Write-ins need to be clear... if I can't understand what you're saying, or if it's not clear that it's a write-in, it will get ignored. I will be computing weighted averages based on the voting, and then rounding to the nearest quarter of an ounce for each hop. I recommend voting in the context of the already determined fact that this addition is one of five flavor/aroma additions.

    For those looking ahead, the next polls will determine the 5 minute addition.

    This poll will be open for 48 hours.

    Heavier on the Centenial for me on this one. After thinking about this, I think I went too heavy, I think building recipes like this is starting to confuse me.

    I went with .5oz for each again. I am curious why so many people seem to be going lighter on this addition vs. the 15 minute one. If anything, I would expect to go heavier with the later additions because you don't have the IBU "problem".

    Is this just adjusting to what has already been decided? If you were designing from scratch would you go lighter on the later additions? What are you going to do if this addition ends up being .5oz for each?

    I voted for an ounce total last time, an ounce total this time. Next additions I will vote bigger. Whatever the results, it'll be tasty anyway, even if I don't get my way. :rolleyes:

    I went with .25 for all 3 so I could go bigger at the end.

    It is a weighted average so you could vote for 10 (or even 100!) oz additions and skew the results :p

    I'm going small again. The 5 and 0 will be larger though. How long is our hopstand? That influences my hop voting right now actually now that I am thinking about it?

    VikeMan, I know its too late for this poll, but by not having 0 oz as an option, it seems to me that the results are biased against those who would not use a particular hop for a given addition. That is, abstaining from a given hop (which is what one has to do if one doesn't want to use a particular hop), is not the same as being able to vote for zero oz of a particular hop. Just some food for thought.

    That ship sailed on the last poll. We voted for all 3 for the 10 minute addition. And it looks like you voted for all 3 for this addition.

    If it's worth doing, then it's worth over doing! Throw them all in!

    Ah, yes. Slipped my mind. I remembered that we voted for these three late addition hops. I forgot that we voted specifically with regards to each addition.

    Should I be thinking of this as a 5 gallon batch or a 6 gallon batch?

    With this many hops? 8 gallons pre-boil, 5.5 gallons into fermenter I'd say... Lots of trub loss here.

    The basic recipe will be for 5 gallons of wort (and no kettle trub) into the fermenter. I'll be arbitrarily applying my own hop wort absorption numbers, which will drive some amount of extra water requirement, and will also affect IBUs. Folks who know their systems to be different can tweak as necessary. All that will be stated in the recipe, to avoid confusion.

    And the answer is, Simcoe, Centennial, and Cascade. 0.5 ounces of each.
