Steeping Hops whislt beer fermenting
« on: February 01, 2018, 12:07:11 PM »
Hi,

I want to impart some more flavour to my fermeting beer and was thnking of taking some wort, Heating up to around 80c and steeping some hops in it. I would then chill the wort down filter the hops out and tip it back into my FV when im ready to rack off.

Does see any issues with that?

Thanks

That will add bitterness that could very well negatively affect the beer.  Dry hopping will add flavor (flavor is 80% aroma).

What additional flavors are you looking for?  A little more specific may help with directing how to answer your question.
