This seems off the wall....has anyone used a vaporizor to flavor hops so when added to secondary fermentation they can have flavors??

Why wouldn't you just add the flavoring to secondary at the same time?

Hops already have flavors. They are called... Hop Flavors...

But, this brings up a good question: Why can't we put hops and hot water in a vaporizer and make the whole house smell like hops??

Why not just boil some hot water on the stove with hops in it--won't that achieve the same effect?

I would think you would get a more pleasant, sustained, light hop aroma with the vapor than the boil.

As for adding flavor, lets say you wanted grape flavored hops. I dont know why, but you do. Why not just soak the hops in grape juice, and use the grape juice with the now soggy hops in secondary?

BECAUSE......Hops are naturally anti bacterial. Grapejuice or Grape "flavoring" to date, are decidedly NOT antibacterial.
