    My first attempt at mash hopping today. It seemed like a good choice to use my homegrown Centennials and not spend a ton on store boughts. It's in the kettle right now.

    Recipe:
    10 lbs. 2 row pale
    2 lbs Caramunich 60
    1.125 lbs Centennial fresh hops, mashed
    .5 oz. Chinook pellets @ boil
    2 oz. Citra pellets @ 45 min.
    Safale US-05

    I'm interested in hearing from others about both fresh hop recipes and mash hopping experiences.

    I read about some possible benefits in Scott Janish's book, so I've started doing it for most of my beers, certainly all the hoppy ones. Can't say I've noticed a difference one way or another, but then I'm not the most systematic brewer, so it may be there.
