    Now we'll determine which of the flavor/aroma hops will be used in the Dry Hop addition. The potential combinations are unique. Straight plurality wins.

    For those looking ahead, the next poll will determine quantity(s) of hops for this addition.

    This poll will be open for 48 hours.

    If you have issues with or suggestions for methodologies used in this project, please Beer Mail me.
    Let's keep the threads themselves on topic to the question at hand (not about how you would have asked the question differently). I will not address methodology questions in the forum any more. I'm not going to risk having a thread deleted due to a flame war. If this irks you, please consider not playing.

    Simcoe and Centennial. Not the biggest fan of Cascade as a dry hop in an IPA (Rye IPA is another story), too spicy, although it is nice late in the boil/whirlpool.

    If I could pour liquid cascade hops into my glass out of a gallon jug I would do it :grimacing:

    Can't wait for the polls to be done so we can get to brewin'. Are we leaving the amount of Magnum open to user discretion to arrive at 64 IBU's?

    I will be posting recipes that will have computed Magnum amounts in them, along with a plethora of reasons the required amount might be different in everyone's systems. Here's a preview...
