I have three of the sample bags (4.2 grams)of Hash Session from Sweetwater and wanna brew with them but have no idea what 4.2 grams of hash would equal in ounces. I emailed them but didn't get a response, thoughts?
Where did you order them? I have had the beer, I would like to try that out as well.I have three of the sample bags (4.2 grams)of Hash Session from Sweetwater and wanna brew with them but have no idea what 4.2 grams of hash would equal in ounces. I emailed them but didn't get a response, thoughts?
Well if you assume the conservation of alpha acids, then 0.02 oz of hop hash would equal 1 oz of the original hop. So, just multiply the amount of regular hops, of whatever variety you would use, by 0.02 to determine how much hash of the same variety to use. The equivalence also works out to 0.57 grams per oz.Friend/bar owner gave them to me. Think he got them from a Sweetwater rep doing a tap takeover one night. Bag says it takes 50 lbs of hops to get 1 lb of hash, just a factoid I don't see how it's helpful.
Nice, thanks for the feedback. Mine should arrive tomorrow. Looking forward to experimenting with it.I've used hop-hash twice now and it's IMO only for dry hop. Use in a ratio of about 1 oz hash per 4 oz pellet. If you use it in the boil, I found it inparts a lot of tea like flavors that I did not like. Dry hop however was awesome, even five weeks into the keg. Also.....I did a split batch of an APA. 3 oz dry hop with cascade for one , 1oz Idaho 7 on the other. Wow both were great, but the #7 was excellent and next time I'm leaving out the late boil additions because the hop hash dominates everything else in flavor and aroma. Potentially it's a great way to make a flavorful and aromatic ally hoppy beer with little hop investment.
