Best Regards:

Somebody can say to me How much grams of green cones hop with 3% of alpha acid I must use as opposed to such of the same variety in pellets to make beer ??

I have understood that in the formula it is a difference because in hops cone without dried exist a high water percentage.

In that order of ideas.. I must increase the hop green cones grams in the percentage of water that it has , at the moment adding hop when the wort is boiled or I applied to him the same green hop grams amount if they were pellets??.

How much is the percentage of water that has the green hop cones ?

Tank you for your help.

there was just a thread talking about this...


but why don't you just dry some up and measure the weight difference yourself? that will probably give you the most accurate water content factor per your crop.
