So I was wandering around the internets trying to learn about alpha acids and beta acids. I get that AAs are what makes hops bitter, but I'm still unsure what beta acids are for. In my wanderings I came across something called "Teamaker Hops". It's supposed to be a type of hop that is low on AA (~1%) but high in BA, so you can make a hop tea without the bite.
My question is, where do I get some and has anyone tried using them as aroma hops/dry hops? I'm a bit skeptical on their existence since all of the pages that come up regarding Teamaker seem to be clones of the same news article.
Haven't heard of Teamaker, but there are certainly low-AA hops sold for making tea. Mainly used as a sleeping aid. With dozens of known hops available, I wouldn't bother trying to track down an unknown.
But, it's your beer.
