Hop city

Apparently this is so hot right now in some trendy craft beer bars. Huw, Jason, Benny and I gave it a go while the Export Stout was brewing.

Take some hop flowers (we used Galaxy)

Add them to a coffee plunger

Add some beer (we used a couple of Stellas as they're pretty plain)

And out comes extra hop infused beer. We decided that next time we'd add more hops and leave for a longer time. It definitely added something to the mouthfeel and flavour of the beer, a bit of aroma. Definitely worth trying another time with some more hops.


  1. Next time, I suggest we use fresh hop flowers (maybe our own...!), and crush them in a mortar and pestle before adding to the plunger.

  2. Yes! I'd love to do it with fresh hops. Always. Now we have a year to wait...
