    Hey so after dealing with this years harvest, ive got about a heaped tablespoon of pure lupulin.

    I wanna put it into a brew as a dry-hop addition.
    Has anyone done it before? Im sure they have, so i guess I actually should ask- was it good?
    Is a heaped tablespoon enough to use on its own and actually taste it?

    Given that its pretty much pure oil/resin im also wondering if it wpuld be better used in the boil or as a whirlpool addition......
    Spewing coz i had around 3-4 times that amount but it ended up on the floor and ground...

    I nearly bought some the other day, I was planning on a dry hop and was unsure so I went with the pellets

    Is that the same thing though?
    Im only now just consulting the google....
    The stuff i have is just raw and fell out of the flowers. Sounds like the stuff that can be bought is extracted somehow....?
    Maybe im wrong- still googling

    What weight have you got? Weigh it, record it, and give it a try in the whirlpool.

    I'd read the reviews of Cryo-hops before using. It's recommended to use the lupulin heavy product during whirlpool or dry hop and not in the boil.

    Got mine from Brewman still not tried it yet will be making something with it soon, don't make a lot of the AIPA's but still keen to try it. Could have been a one off deal but if there is any interest maybe Steve will do another run of it.
    Looks like philistine is about to snort what he has got, 2 lines.:)

    I used 50g of citra pure powder in an IPA. Worked out well.
