This thing is lame and will fail. People get into home brewing because it's fun and rewarding.
Some people will buy this as a novelty item, use it twice, and then it'll be a dust collector.
I mean, wh...

Jesus H Christ, the small-mindedness in this thread. :smack:Sorry, but some of us don't have
the BTU's, or the time to do it "your way," and for many of us, our favorite beers are almost

I feel the same way.. hops have ruined me. I have a beautiful batch of BM's Kona Fire Rock Pale
Ale, that my non-hophead friends are loving. All I keep thinking is.. it's tasty, but just not

This will kill his hop flavor! Cool that wort as quickly as possible or the precious

OP is using extract.Am I missing something? The op is talking about a 15 minute boil, that's

Don't listen to the naysayers in here, who have obviously never done this. Late hopping works
great and the flavor is better, IMO. Personally, I think you get better balance with 20 minute
or less hop...

My hop tea experiments to date have been post-fermentation to avoid such oil losses, but I have
experienced grass bombs. Fridge aging and it subsides a bit, but still grassy notes. I'd been

Have you experimented with the amount of time steeping? Seems like less time than a full 60
would yeild more of the fleeting oils that produce flavor and aroma, like with late hopping.I
