Check to see how fresh the mouse turds are.

Yes, the harvest this year was minimal, but I would find a more legit way of salvaging my forecasted brews... Like trying a different varietal of hops.

Also, you wanted cheap Amarillo hops, I can find no reason anyone would legitimately need them.

Best of luck with the fairy dust, And I am genuinely curious to see people's results with it. I could see dry hopping with it or perhaps for a <5 minute addition, but don't think I would brew with something of questionable alpha content.

You people crack me up. Often at the bottom of my 1lb bags of hops (no matter the supplier), there is at least an ounce of hop dust. You know what I do with it? I use it. I treat it as an ounce of hops.

I doubt it has questionable alpha content. It's probably smack in the middle of Amarillo's alpha range. As I said earlier in this thread: Is hop dust an inferior product to hop pellets, yes probably. Whether it's perception or reality, it is the 'left overs'. But give the ridiculous negativity a break. Mouse turds? Really?

How would AA% be questionable with the hops being in smaller sizzed pieces?

If anything I bet they would have better utilization... ie. Whole < Pellet < Dust.

I use Amarillo exclusively for late additions, it's aroma is what I am after so I really don't care about the aa. This will be perfect for my needs. The cost was far less than anywhere else and there isn't a suitable replacement for Amarillo IMO. Mix that with some Simcoe and you have heaven in a glass.

While I love a good Amarillo IPA I can't see paying 2X what I pay for Cascade and Willamette (my preferred dry hopping hops) for "Dust". I need to start growing Amarillo, Simcoe and Citra!

Your going to have to steal the plants/ rhizomes, order wet hops and try to root a vine with a growth tip, or wait a long time for the patents to end.

When you buy a pound of pellet hops you should be able to assume that they haven't been laying on the floor.

You don't know how long it was laying around the machine before they swept it up.

At this point, I'm just here for the entertainment.
