POWER Outage Boil cut short, So I steeped the sack

Recommended Posts

Another storm rolled thru NoVA.

20 min into boilng my Citra whole hops,no more boil.

I left em in the pot to steep for half an hour,
as it cooled (still mighty hot).
What does this do for the flavor and aroma?

Another accidental experiment... :silly:

Hard to say but possibly more bitterness. You might want to think about adjusting the rest of your hop additions a bit.
I have to admit, I'm not sure what to suggest.

My guess is that you'll get some additional flavor and bitterness from the hops as long as the wort is hot. But that's compared with what you'd get from a 20 minute boil and quick cool off. This is sort of like a no chill batch, do the same "rules" would apply.
