Hops dry cast is a good way to increase the aroma of beer hops.
The real 'hop lovers' will tell you that in addition to boiling and reducing the boiling time of hops, hop drying is the preferred technology for IPA and other hop style beers to maintain a soft aroma of hops.
Hops are usually added during boiling to provide the bitter substance needed to balance malt sweetness in beer. The winemaker can also boil the last 5-
Hops are added for 10 minutes to enhance the aroma, but even so, a lot of volatile hop oil will be lost.
The dry throw of hops the dry throw of hops is the operation of adding hops into the fermentation tank or barrel after fermentation.
The dry hops will not add bitter taste to the beer, but it will give the hops oil that is volatile during the boiling process.
Hops dry cast can be soaked in the finished beer, placed in a few days to a few weeks time, will produce a strong hop aroma.
Professional winemakers strengthen the hop style of beer through hop dry investment, including iron anchor freedom (Anchor Liberty), Samuel Adams light-colored AL (
Samuel Adams Pale Ale)And Sierra Nevada beer (
Sierra Nevada celebration). Many consumers like the bright aroma of hops.
On the contrary, some consumers feel the flavor of 'grass' or 'oil' from the dried hops.
This technology is suitable for brewing beer styles with high hop usage, such as IPA, light El, some Shitao, and California Steam beer.
The choice of hop dry casting the first question to consider when making hop dry casting is: which hop to cast? Low alpha acid value (6% or less)
The fragrant flowers are the first choice. These hops contain a high content of volatile hops oil.
All noble hops and most varieties of fragrant flowers with low alpha acid value are applicable.
For example: saz, Tatnam, haradao, gold medal, Fagel, cascarter and wilhelmut.
Should choose hops that match the corresponding beer style--
For example, the golden wine flower in Britain is more suitable for British Al or Indian pale al.
Which form of hop granule hop, lump original flower or cake original flower is used?
Block raw flowers or granular hops are usually the first choice, especially when using a glass fermenter with a narrow neck, it may be difficult for Flake hops to enter and exit the fermenter.
Granular hops may cause foam when added, because much like Diet Coke and mantuos, particles have a larger surface area and can interact with the remaining carbon dioxide produced by fermentation.
Some purists like massive raw flowers because they are worried that the extra processing and compression of granular hops may affect the fragile hop oil and aroma.
Personally, when the hops are dried, I noticed that there is no significant difference between the lumpy original flowers and the granular hops. The amount of hops used depends mainly on preference. Add 28 per 19 liters-55 grams is considered the right amount.
If you want a soft floral fragrance, you can use a smaller amount. Real 'hop lovers' put up to 120 grams of hops into 19 liters of tender beer.
How to cast hops, when and how long?
Some winemakers throw hops during the main fermentation, but most people think that the carbon dioxide during the main fermentation will take away the precious hops oil.
The appropriate time for hops to be dried is after the main fermentation is completed.
During the ripening period, the hops can be dried without worrying about the volatilization of precious hops oil.
The third option is to invest directly in the Keg barrel, so the time of the dry investment is not easy to control, resulting in the flavor of 'green grass', and the hops may remain in the Keg barrel for several months.
Some winemakers use mesh bags to wrap hops, making it easier to separate from beer.
Others carefully separate beer only when siphoning.
After a period of time, the granular hops tend to sink, while the original hops and the lump flowers tend to float on them.
Obviously, a bag is needed to wrap the hops to prevent the hop residue from blocking the fermentation barrel.
There is also a big difference in the duration of dry hops in beer.
A few days of dry dosing time is the minimum time required to extract the hop oil. Generally, it takes 3 days for hops to be dried.
Adding hops to a Keg barrel may leave the hops in contact with the beer for several months.
Excessive dry investment may produce 'grass' flavor, but I have never had such a major problem.
However, what needs to be considered at present is that too long time of hop drying should be avoided.
