Relativity: part 2

Recommended Posts

Now that I have a 2gal recipe that's really super, I want to make it in 4gal batches. The fermenter and boil kettle are no problem, but hopping might be.

Hop utilization is a something I'm not so clear on. IE, would hopping be relative to the volume of water? If 1oz of a particular hop is good for 2gal of water, do I just double of the hops for 4 gals of water during the boil?

And what about dry-hopping? Double that also?

This is time thing. No extra time to make twice the beer. That's the goal anyway.

Within the range that's of interest to brewers, I think hop utilization is pretty linear, so just doubling everything should work fine. You could plug everything into QBrew and see if the results are the same.
