Description
 
  • CO2 Extract Cans
  • 100g
  • 61.1%AA
GmAA = IBU x (BBL/0.8522)
3.5*


GmAA = grams of alpha acids to be added

IBU = desired amount of bitterness units from the CO2 addition

BBL = barrels of finished beer

*Use rates may vary depending on the brewing process and the desired hopping level. If you would like to change the efficiency from 61%, adjust the 6.1 in the equation. 62% efficiency will change this value to 6.2.

Homebrewers - if you are making a batch less than 1 barrel, you will need to divide the number of gallons by 31. The resulting decimal will be placed into the BBL box for calculations.

Only way to reproduce some commercial examples November 6, 2013
Reviewer: Jonas from Jackson, MS United States  
Did some research on this product and found it's basically what another online HBS sells as a HopShot.
Did my research to calculate IBUs and actually found that 20 ml per 10 gallons boiled for 60 minutes gives me amount 60 IBUs. Taste test confirmed as about right.
I ordered syringes off of eBay, put the tin can in a pan with hot water and filled the syringes with 10 ml of extract. Extract is like tar unless slightly heated.
Really adds a unique hop character to my IPAs. Lots of flavor comes through. I tried adding later in the boil and wasn't as impressed. For my recipes I add the hop extract at 60 minutes and traditional leaf or pellet hops at 5 minutes, flame out, and dry hopping.
