Dry Hopper & Hop Filter
Dry hopping is a very common way for brewers to maximize hop aroma and flavor, which includes adding a load of hops to the beer during the fermentation cycle. Some brewers often cast loose, prefer to hop their hops in a filter that has countless advantages including a reduction in the danger of blocking valves and dip tubes and enabling cleaner yeast to be collected. One popular instrument for dry hop filtration is the easy fabric bag, although nowadays stainless steel mesh filters are becoming increasingly popular owing to the enhanced accessibility of wider mouthed fermentation vessels.
Despite the above-noted advantages of dry hop filtering, restricted hops that do not come into contact with the filter’s beer or hop oils that eventually reduce the hops character. Interestingly, the result of earlier on dry hops filtering with a bag of the cloth showed that the effect was little or no notice and while many suspicions of a dry Hop bagger have been verified, others have been left wondering whether comparable effects could be seen if the filter is made of stainless steel. There are no such qualitative variations.
