I am thinking about trying to utilize the hops I use better by combining late addition and early addition via a coffeepress.
The basic idea is to make a hops-tea in the coffeepress, let it sit for maybe 5 minutes, then press the hops down and pour the tea into a sanitized bottle/bucket and then add the hops from the press to the boil for the full 60 minutes.
What I hope to achieve is to preserve the aromas you get by late-addition but still get the full bittering out of it.
Has anyone tried this? Would I be combining advantages or disadvantages with this method?
