Default Hopshot

I'm new to brewing, so I'm just wondering how well this product works! It sounds like it is a must-have for strong bitterness.. Thinking about adding it into a stout kit to make a black IPA.

Let me know what you think!

I agree. Pretty great for cheap bittering addition.

Are you supposed to use it at the beginning of the boil only, or can you use it for flavor/aroma as well?

I used several when I was between systems and brewing with basic gear. Worked great as did not have great way to filter from the boil kettle so these gave no hop solids to worry about. Pretty cheap per IBU as well.

Instructions say you can use for flavor/aroma but since I didn't know what kind of aroma that would leave I just use it for bittering.
