Experimenting with Smoked Hops
- Brian Haslip
- Location: Oregon Ballroom 202
A must for those who enjoy beers made with smoked malts, this course introduces homebrewers to an alternative method of introducing smoke flavor: smoked hops. Smoked hops can be added in the boil or as dry hops to deliver a unique smoke flavor different from that of traditional rauchbier. Participants will be introduced to the techniques used to smoke fresh and dried whole hops and will be provided samples of beers brewed with smoked malt and smoked hops for comparison.
