Re: Hop matter in suspension

Sorry, not read all the posts, but my two penny worth... for what its worth. Hop haze cannot be removed or eased without cold crashing. The fine debris of the hop will not drop out with auxiliary or isinglass finings they're just not designed to deal with it. Cold crashing will not remove the parti...

Re: Hop matter in suspension

So the one that was really bitter had 310g of dry hops in 44 litres, the 1st (nice brew) had 200g and the 3rd (also nice) had 100g of pellet and 100g of cryo pellet. The bitter brew was the only one to have a 100c/30 min steep of 100g. Hmmmm, he says to himself. I may try removing the flame out addi...

Re: Hop matter in suspension

How do the cryo hops behave in the fermenter? Do they settle out after about a week like pellets (without crash cooling that is)?

Re: Hop matter in suspension

Hi Keith

They sound interesting. Will probably add some to my order next time I need a sack of grain.
Do you think you had a threshold of a certain quantity of pellets as dry hops before you got the harsh bitterness or did it depend on the variety used?

Re: Hop matter in suspension

Hi Keith I'm not really bothered about the haze/cloud. I do understand that when using a healthy dose of hops that there will be some haze. My main concern is the bitterness. I factored in 10-15 mins worth of bittering for the f/o hops but didn't allow for the 80c addition thinking that isomerisatio...

Hop matter in suspension

Hi all I've been doing a few trial brews....... I've removed the stupid bazooka filter from my ace brewer and now use a 200 micron spider for my hop additions. There's still a small amount of hop debris getting into my fermenter. About 4 days before kegging I've been adding 150g of mixed pellets, lo...

Re: Hops by the gram

If I remember correctly you just need to email them with your recipe and they'll make it up for you.

Re: Hops by the gram

There's always Worcester hop shop. You can submit your own recipe there and as long as they stock the ingredients they'll put it together for you

Indeed and most brewing software will easily convert to smaller batch sizes.
I do agree with the hop timings though

Re: New kid on the bloxk

I stand mine on an old chair. It's solid as a rock so no danger of falling over. Fill by gravity into fermenter and access to control panel is easy :D
Cracking piece of kit

Finally had a reply.
As suspected it's not fit for human consumption. I'll have to add some to my next order from Rob
