Okay, I won't get into my reasoning at the time, but I had a brain lapse and a buddy bet me I wouldn't consume a teaspoon of hop extract (we are brewing a Heady Topper-esque clone)... I did it, but didn't consider it being 61.1% alpha acid. Can anyone do a quick calculation to determine the ph level of a teaspoon of 61.1% alpha acid with the 64oz of water I just drank??? I can't find a ph level for hop extract anywhere and don't have a test kit. Am I safe to continue on, or do I need to get to the hospital??? Just calling a doctor and saying 'I ate some hop extract' isn't going to get me anywhere.


Please don't ridicule me... I know.

What dose it say on the package? Call poison control. If your body's ph is off more than it can compensate for, you can get sick or die.

The package says 'Yakima Valley Hops CO2 Extract 61.1% alpha acid.'

No more no less.

I made a tray of hard candy with 5ml of extract in it. The smallest piece was so bitter I could hardly get it down. Batch 2 I used 1ml. This time it was palatable, but not what I considered pleasant.
