A video I made a while back on my first homebrewed SMASH Cascade Hop IPA, my first home brew on the new Brewzilla. I grew these hops in my backyard, and figured I would make it into an IPA.
I didn’t use a dehydrator, which means that a lot of the hop weight was water weight, so take the hop additions with a grain of salt. Amateur!
Next harvest season I’ll be picking my harvest and brewing right away, to give a better idea of ideal quantities and to have maximum fresh hop flavour and aroma.
Notes to myself would be to orient hop additions much later in the boil and try dry hopping. I have a fear of dry-hopping home-grown hops during fermentation, but other homebrewers I’ve spoken to about this seem to not be too worried about contamination…. So, that will be a future video. Homebrewing and learning as I go.
