Effects of boil temperature on hop utilization
« on: March 29, 2010, 10:51:20 PM »
Hi there, I live and brew in Denver.  As a product of living in the mile high city, our water boils at 202 degrees here instead of 212. 

I've always wondered what effect this has on hop utilization and if I should adapt my recipes to account for this.  Does anyone have any experience or know of a resource that talks about how IBUs are effected by the boil temp?

Thanks!
