Question about "Hop Shots"
« on: September 11, 2009, 12:07:20 PM »
   I was wondering, has anyone used the product "Hop Shot" by Northern Brewer? I would like to make a Clone of Lagunitas's "Hop Stoopid" which has an OG of 1.085 and 102 IBU's with a bitterness ratio of 1.2.

(Using Hop shots because Lagunitas replaces hops with "hop shots" in the boil)

On the Northern Brewer website, they explain that the shots are about 10 IBU's per shot for a 5 gallon 1.050 OG batch. So how would that convert into a 5 gallon batch at 1.085 OG? Basically what I'm asking then is how many shots would I need?
