Brupaks - Flavapaks£1.75
Improves the flavour and aroma of all ale kits, e.g. Bitter, Stouts, Milds etc. Contains fresh hops and grains in special porous bags. Just place the bags in a jug or saucepan and cover with boiling water. After 30 minutes add the liquid to the kit in the fermenter.
Hop Aroma Tablets£6.50
These tablets, which contain real hop oil, can be added either to the secondary fermenter or directly into the dispensing keg at the rate of 1/4 tablet to 23 litres. They will dissolve completely in 3 days leaving behind that elusive hop bouquet without increasing the bitterness.
Pack size 5 tablets
Isomerised Hop Extract - 28ml£3.85
Being 'isomerised' means that this hop extract does not need to be boiled to release its bitterness.
It contains 28ml and is sufficient for 45 litres of beer.
Isomerised Hop Extract is used to replace boiler bittering hops, to improve the rate of hop use, or to adjust bitterness levels of beers that are found to have been under-hopped.
To control the bitterness of beers the Extract should be added post-fermentation.
In addition it may also provide an economic alternative to hopping during a boil when undertaking high-gravity brews.
Isomerised Hop Extract will contribute to foam resiliance and cling, similar to that of traditional bitter hopping.
It will also act as a natural anti-microbiological agent.
It provides good utilisation with comparatively low costs.
As the label peels off easily leaving a plain bottle about 3" tall, a couple of these in one's suitcase would arouse little interest but could be used in producing beer in hot, dry and otherwise extremely thirsty parts of the world where hops are not readily available.
