OK I'm ready to brew up a 100% pilsner beer and want to bitter 120 liters with 100 grams of magnum. I have a bunch of 3.7% liberty to play with. How can I get the best hop flavor out of these? Should I consider FWH? Thanks!

I'd probably do something like this: (disclaimer - I'm not used to working with volumes this large)

Wow Hallertauer, you have a one barrel system?

Thanks Graham, I'll give that a try. I'll have to see it I have 12 ounces though. Just looked, I only have 126 grams \ I guess I should have not used the word, "bunch". Hmmm Graham, with that in mind, where should I put them in to get the best bang for what I have on hand?

Bob, I have a keg with the top cut off as a boiler and I also have (2) separate 30 liter electric boilers. I use them all at once. I brew together with a neighbor and we split the batch.

Man, that's not going to be a very hoppy Pils - that's only the equivalent of about 3/4 ounce of flavor/aroma hops in a 5-gallon batch. (Sorry for the non-metric units, but that's how I've learned to brew.)

I'd have to recommend reducing your batch size or committing yourself to brewing a Helles instead of a Pils. Or just buy more hops, if they're available.

I follow a traditional Pils hop schedule of 60min, 45min, 30min, 15min hop additions. All with Hallertau hops. I try to stay in the center of the BJCP Style guidelines for IBUs... about 35.

I do FWH, 60 min., and flameout.

Same as DW, with a 15min addition too. It's just to give me something to do really... :-)

I'm not a metric person either, but I think that's still 4 or 5 ounces of liberty.

Graham, what a great way to burn a whole sack o grain!

Have you thought about dry hopping with the Liberty? That should give you the greatest effect with the relatively small amount you have. If you don't want to dry-hop, I'd use them all at flame out. For either approach, increase the Magnum at 60 minutes to get the IBUs back up.

OK Patrick, but just the magnum at 60 min. gives me 36 IBU's. I can live with that. I could use the liberty all at flame out or maybe split them ala Denny conn, that is half FWH and the other half at flame out, if I do it like that I'd have 44 IBU's. The BJCP says 25 to 45 is within the style guidelines so I'd be at the upper limit. BTW 146 grams is 5 ounces of liberty. Is that really such a small amount?

Hallertauer, in my Pils recipes I generally use about 4 ounces total in a 5-gallon batch. While I concede that scaling up hop schedules may not necessarily be a linear progression, that would be 25 ounces in a one-barrel batch. So yes, 5 ounces of aroma/flavor hops is a very small amount in a one barrel batch.

Pils is a hoppy beer, in bitterness, flavor, and aroma. To make a hoppy beer, you need lots of hops, and to get bitterness, aroma, and flavor, you need to spread out the additions in some fashion.

If you are dead set on brewing a one-barrel batch and using only the hops you have on hand, I'd split what you have and make an addition with about 10 minutes left and add the other half a knockout and let them steep 5-10 minutes or so with the kettle lid(s) on before initiating your chilling regimen. What you're going to have, though, will be a Helles and not a Pils. If you can live with that, brew on. You just can't make a hoppy Pils in that size batch with what you have on hand.

Given your constraints, I would use all the Magnum at 60 min, and all the Liberty at 15 min, and pass on the knockout hops. That to me would give you the most bang for the buck. The pils make lack a little in aroma, but I bet it will taste good.

Hallertauer,

I'm a big fan of using Liberty as FWH. I think FWH brings out the spiciness of Liberty better than other additions. Any way you can slip 60g of Hallertau in along with it?

If you want any ideas on hop scheduling, I brewed this recipe in Jan. and it just went on tap. It's quite tasty!

OK I'm gonna make this on Friday. Chumley most directly answered my question as how I can get the 'best bang' for the hops that I have but then along came dave witt and made me start to think about FWH. Since my bitter hops are at the top of the guidelines I'm think about lowering them and throwing some of those into a FWH addition along with some liberty. I'll let you know how it goes.
