|Why has dry jumping become so popular?|
Dried hops have become a popular method to control the flavor and aroma characteristics of beer.
Many people who are new to craft beer are not sure what to think of the growing popularity of dry hops. Not only is it ubiquitous in the brewing process, but it is also used in other styles. Of course, this has an impact on the commercial hops provided by the supplier.
Dried hops is a method to control the flavor characteristics and aroma of beer. In essence, dry hops involves putting "dried" hops into the already fermented beer, thus avoiding boiling the hops (there are many hops, so choose carefully!). This ensures a more controlled operation of the flavor profile and aroma.
Let's take a quick look at some basics.
|Benefits of dry jumping|
The main advantage of dry hops is the controlled infusion of the hop flavor (and aroma) into the beer. Dry hops does not involve boiling the hops in the wort, so the essential oil is not removed from the hops (and mixed with beer). It can be said that this avoids the further bitterness of the beer.
Depending on the method used by the brewer, one might reasonably think that dry hops are similar to photo retouching-it is used to modify and ultimately enhance the flavor characteristics and aroma of the beer after fermentation.
There are several different ways to dry hops. No matter which method you choose, you can effectively use a range of different dried hops: leaves, pellets, etc.
Secondary fermentation tank jump
In most cases, dry hops are added to the secondary fermentation tank within a few weeks before the beer is siphoned into the keg or bottle. After several weeks of hops, the flavor and aroma will be thoroughly mixed with the beer, which may be preferable to more subtle dipping methods.
Alternatively, dry hops can be added a few days before the beer is sucked into the keg or bottle. With this balanced method: the beer has enough time to "infuse" the hop flavor and aroma (but the exposure time is limited to a few days), you can ensure that the infused freshness is maintained during bottling. This method is usually the preferred method for brewers who want to mask their beer with a stronger hop flavor (and aroma).
Jump back to the process
Not all dry hops have to be made in the brewery. In fact, the hop recycling process allows dry hops to be carried out at the point of sale. The jump-back process involves filling the filter unit with dry hops and siphoning keg beer through it, thereby injecting the desired flavor profile and aroma.
