Recipes

Hops
These recipes are suggested starting points for experimentation and do not exactly duplicate the nominated beer styles.

Some recipes are enhanced by the use of "finishing hops" packaged in handy 12 gm "tea bags" and prepared by either of the following methods.
Hops tea bags

DRY METHOD
Remove the hop bag from the foil sleeve, being careful not to cut the hop bag. Toss the hop bag into the brew after all other ingredients have been blended in hot water. Stir the brew to ensure that the hop bag is saturated, prior to topping up with cold water.

STANDARD METHOD
Remove the hop bag from the foil sleeve, being careful not to cut the hop bag. Place the hop bag into a sterilised mug, fill with boiling water and steep for 10 minutes while preparing the rest of the brew. At the hot water mixing stage, tip the steeped hop bag and liquid into the brew.
QUICK BOIL METHOD
Dissolve the brewing sugar or malt in 2 litres of warm water, bring to a gentle simmer and stir occasionally. Toss the hop bag into the simmering mixture and simmer for 10 minutes. Do not be concerned should the hop bag break. If a second finishing hop is required, remove the mixture from the heat source and toss in the second hop bag and steep for 10 minutes. Use this mixture as a part of the hot water for the brew.
