CO2 hop extract is now widely used in commercial “CRAFT” breweries as it has many advantages over tradition hop usage. In most cases it is not used for economics but for an improved “cleaner” final product. Large amounts a vegetal matter in the boil can cause brassica type flavours, which are most unwanted.
This product is easy to dose using the 2ml syringe which is included. It is not pre-isomerised meaning that it does have to be boiled, our advice is to boil for an hour.

For home brewing purposes treat 1ml of extract as 1g
