I like the fact that it comes in a syringe. Now you can mainline IBUs directly when you need a hit. No need to fuss with beer as a delivery mechanism!

Extract brewers go nuts... Putting Hop Extract into my All Grain Wort just doesn't feel right.

I'm not laughing too hard. After all, a number of Belgian brewers, including Chimay, use hop extract. Hops are not the distinguishing characteristic of most Belgian beers.

They don't mention the hop variety the extract is made from. For the ultimate solution for extract brewers they also need to offer various hop oils (Cascade, Fuggles, Saaz, Tettnanger, etc.) for aroma additions.

They sent me 10 of those to test before they were put on the market. It's interesting stuff, and I haven't made up my mind whether I like it or not. The bittering seems very mellow, kinda like using Magnum for bittering. The word is that it's made from a blend of hops using a CO2 extraction technique. That means it's not isomerized like other hop extracts I've used in the past. It has a great aroma to it, though.

"it's not isomerized"

Was wondering about the 60 minute boil but that explains it.

Bill, I think it's Hoptech that does offer several varieties of non-isomerized hop oils for late hop flavor and aroma. I know I've bought Cascade oil and tried it. Decided I liked dryhopping better. Although this new double hop french press method may become my new fav.

Can you elaborate on this? I haven't been around much lately.

Trainspotting...or, in this case, Hopspotting...

She - "Honey, it is great that you are homebrewing....a great home hobby...I love your Bock...but...

He - "Yes, the Bock was excellent....the guys at the Bowling league who don't like that fancy stuff...they liked the Bock...."

She - "I understand the 20 corny kegs...the eight sacks of grain in the garage...but, a syringe....a syringe? My God, where has this gone...."

He - "Did I tell you Billy spared a turkey last league night?..."

IMO, the whole point of homebrewing is starting with the basics...malt, water, yeast, hops...at their most basic form....mashing....sparging...boiling...fermenting....and finally a great pint in your hand.

Hey...adding REAL hops is part of the fun...this product gentrifies the process more..IMO...
