Default Hop dust

anybody ever brewed with this stuff? http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...ducts_id=12792 I don't know if I'd wanna do a full batch with stuff that I dont know the compostion of, but it really intrigues me. It could end up as a wonderful "hop salad"

My experience with too many hop varieties added late in the boil is that you just end up getting muddled flavors/aromas. Unless they can place any guarantees on the varieties included, I wouldn't waste the money.

Waste the money? A can of Pepsi costs more..., it's 69 cents! Hell, a muslin bag costs more.

I recently used a 1oz packet of this for a bittering hop for a Pumpkin Wheat. It's kegged, but not in the keg fridge yet (my pipeline is a bit big right now ). I'm not sure if pumpkin wheat was the correct choice for "random hops in a bag" but why not use it for a pale or a bittering hop in a stout or something? If I remember right, it lists the approx AA on the package.

I'll let you know how it works out soon!

Awesome! I have a lot of other beer projects to get to first so definitely let me know how it works out. My idea was a pale with this as the flavoring and aroma hop. Have fun!

I brewed an amber last fall with an ounce. Was earthy / musty aroma & flavor. Was not my favorite beer but my GF liked it.

Ok, so I tapped the Pumpkin Wheat today after my Smoked Amber finally ran out. The beer isn't fully carbed yet, and it was a bit warm when I tried it but GOOD GOD MAN, might be one of the best beers I've ever made! If I handed it to you, you likely wouldn't detect any Pumpkin, and possibly not any wheat.... its strange... Even the spices - I used Pumpkin Pie Spices in it - added a bit more than I did a year prior where I couldn't really taste them. I taste spices, but they don't taste like pumpkin pie. The beer turned out to be similar to an Amber, and has a crispness akin to a lager. If I had to pick a beer it was like.... maybe Sam Adams Boston Lager, but MORE to it - maybe the hops/spice mix?

If the hops had anything at all to do with how good this beer is I say go for your hop dust purchase - and go all in. I'm now disappointed I only brewed 2.5 gal! I may make this again soon. I'm having a party in a few weeks and I'm contemplating keeping it hidden, so I can have it all to myself. I only used the hop dust as a bittering hop, with no flavor or aroma hop so if the hops have to do with this flavor they did a damn good job. And for $.69, why not? I'm about to make another purchase soon, and I'll be sure to pick up 2 or 3oz of this just to play around some more. I really hope they still have some when I order. Cheers!

OMG, people will sell anything these days won't they.
If you grow your own hops, I place tinfoil under the screens when drying them and collect a handfull of lupulin. Place in a jar and use as a dry rub on my rib eyes. It is wonderful.

Why did I read that as a dry rub on my eye lids?

Luckily, I re-read your post before smearing hoppy goodness on my eyes to see what the results would be.



I like the idea of a dry hopped steak though...very creative.
