Hopping Wort
« on: March 27, 2012, 09:55:14 AM »
I'm trying to max out my hop additions and wonder about "hopping wort". Can anyone describe the procedure? Is it simply a hop addition to the boiling kettle during the sparge ? Or is it done by adding hops to grist during the mash? Also, at the end of the wort chill and prior to yeast addition, is it best to leave as much trub and remnant hops (at bottom of kettle) instead of allowing it to enter fermenter?

Weird Term.  Wort is in the kettle so deconstructing it seems to mean adding hops  to the work which I would hope is already in the plan.

Mash Hopping would be as you described as adding hops to the grist.  There is only anecdotal reports of this having any value but the general consensus seems to be that it doesn't add anything.
