Did you end up doing it?

If so, how was it?

Bump...


I'm thinking of doing something similar with my IPA. I want to boil about a third of my hops for about ten minutes then put the "tea" in the secondary, dry hopping with a weighted bag with the last 2/3rds. Similar yet different?

I did it.

Batch ended up being band aid beer Sanitizer not rinsed. Last time I used anything but No rinse....

I kinda forgot it, thanks for the bump!

The boiling of the dryhops is an epic idea!

I now keg too.

Gave you guys ever boiled hops in water and tasted the result? One try was all it took me to decide I didn't want that stuff in my beer.

People make hop tea additions all the time, AND people flavor their priming solution with spices like ginger on occassion....I don't see how this really is any different. And where all the "it won't work" is coming from.

I wouldn't boil the hops though. I would boil the priming solution as normal, then do a flameout addition of the hops. let it cool, strain through a sanitized strainer right into the bottling bucket.

Revvy, I know people make hop teas all the time. People do all kinds of crazy things all the time! Having tried it, personally I don't like it. I've done boiling, steeping, adjusting pH, not adjusting pH....still tastes like crap to me.

Hop tea is a standing beverage on it's own.

My understanding is that for proper beer hop flavor, the liquid needs some gravity beyond water. Sugar would provide that, or if that isn't ok, use DME to prime .

Did you add it to a beer? Or just tasted the hop tea and decided to toss it?

I added a bit to a glass. I could still detect the intense chlorophyll taste and tannic mouthfeel so I didn't add it to the batch.
