A friend and I recently threw an IPA together with the hops and grains we had on hand. We had 8oz of Cascade whole leaf hops lying around, so to spread the love, we decided to throw a couple ounces into the mash tun and mashed for 60 minutes at 155F with the rest of the grains.
The beer has since been bottled, and is quite enjoyable. But I am left clueless as to what, if anything, mashing with 2 ounces of Cascades gave us in our final product.
What will mashing with hops do for your beer?
