I dry hopped a kit brew with some Amarillo hops and tasted it for the first time last night. OMFG it was good and now I want to make another brew with even more hoppy flavour in it. I was thinking of boiling some hops in a little DME to achieve this. As I'm adding this to a kit I suppose extra bitterness is not really important just more hop flavour. Would I be correct in assuming that if I boil some hops for say, 5 minutes then I would be getting lots more hop flavour and not much bitterness? Or is this a waste of time and should just be adding more hops in to the 'dry hopping' stage?
