Bittering Hops

Posted October 14th, 2015 | 0 Comments

The trend in craft beer is to enjoy higher IBU’s (International Bittering Units) than in the past. Make your Barons beer kit as usual, remove about 4 L of the wort and place into a stainless steel pot. Add your hops and simmer for one hour. Once cooled add the 4 L of malt to your primary. Stir in your bentonite and sprinkle your yeast on the surface.

The rule of thumb is:

     • Aroma Hops – simmer for less than 5 minutes or dry hop in your primary
     • Flavouring Hops- simmer for 15 – 30 minutes
     • Bittering Hops – simmer for 1 hour as above
