Hops for fermentation
Hops are the flowers (also called seed cones or strobiles) of the hop plant Humulus lupulus.They are used primarily as a flavoring and stability agent in beer, to which they impart bitter, zesty, or citric flavours;though they are also used for various purposes in other beverages and herbal medicine. The hop plant is a vigorous, climbing, herbaceous perennial, usually trained to grow up strings in a field called a hopfield, hop garden (nomenclature in the South of England), or hop yard (in the West Country and U.S.) when grown commercially. Many different varieties of hops are grown by farmers around the world, with different types being used for particular styles of beer.
It is already a trend to feed hops during fermentation, Hop gun is a product under this situation.
Hop gun is also been called hop rocket,hop cannon.
How many hops to be filled in the hop gun? It is different between raws,pellets and hop paste.There is a ratio between hops the hop gun volume.
For raws, it is 1:10
For pellet,it is 1:2
For hop paste,it is 1:1
Normally,we don’t suggest to feed too much hops into hop gun. If too much hops, it will blcok the filter cartridge inside hop gun.
The inside filter cartridge have been changed from 100mesh to 30mesh.
