Hop Extract

Postby mpietropaoli » Fri Jun 10, 2016 10:26 am

Does anyone use it for bittering? We have used the single shots before, but would like to possibly buy some in bulk. My main concern would be that it oxidizes very quickly as I believe its packaged in CO2.

I use hop extract--it's available through Yakima Valley Hops.

I have stored mine in syringes for over a year and have not noticed any degradation in aroma or final bitterness, but YMMV.

so you buy it in bulk then pull it into syringes, or it comes in the syringes?

I know the individual hop shots are sealed in syringes, but I was trying to see if there was a way you could buy in bulk and store the unused extract.

I make my bittering hop extract once per year. Use syringes, and have no issues.

Bryan,

Where are you sourcing your extract? The 100g cans from Yakima are pretty economical but curious if there is a source or if it matters. Also, do you prefer this over pellets for bittering?
