My wife made me a collection of hop extracts for flavoring beers. (she had already tried tea bags for infusing).
It only took a small amount to really pump up the aroma and flavor.




Here is her comments: "6 varietal extracts made with cold vodka so aroma and flavor are not destroyed and a mixed boiled bittering hops. Chinook, Columbus, Magnum, Amarillo, Cascade, Willamette and bittering hops. Just 2 or 3 drops and wow! Flavor abounds!"

So how did she do it? Do you add it to any beer? Does it magically make a BMC taste good?

She soaked the hops for several hours in vodka and then filtered the vodka multiple times. The hops were then boiled with water to make a bittering extract.

dunno what BMC is (I can only assume you are referring to yellow fizzy beer)
I'll have to ask someone who actually buys/drinks that stuff to try it.

BMC = Bud/Miller/Coors, or your usual yellow pisswater.
