Hop Back

Postby DunkelDave » Fri Nov 30, 2001 9:16 pm

Does anyone use a hop back? I have thinking about trying one. How would you modify a recipe to use one? I would be trying to get more hop flavor.

Thanks.

Been looking at using a hopback myself And came to the conclusion that unless i was doing very large batches it wasnt worth the hassle. BUT!! Not to put you off, as far as i could asertain, a hopback works better than steeping your hops after the boil. Whether the amount you would utilise is far greater i couldnt say and i suppose experimentation is the key.For hop flavour pump your HOT wort through the hopback, for aroma pump Cold wort, For bitterness its bloody useles which is why i gave up on the idea, I wanted to eliminate all the hop flowers in my boiler.
