Hop tincture?

(1/2) > >>

euge:
Is it possible to make a tincture from whatever variety of hops and still retain the desirable qualities? Anyone ever done it for brewing purposes?



dean:
I've been reading a little on making essential oils and extracts, basically it looks like two methods, distilling and half arsed distilling.   :D  Do a search on it and you'll find a few sites with some info.  I'd like to try it with hops as well since I'm going to have way more hops than I can use.   ;D  8)

dean:
Here are a couple links you might find helpful.

What kind of "desirable qualities" are you looking for?  I.E., do you want to use the tincture for bittering, flavor, aroma, all 3...that might have a bearing on if it's possible and how you'd do it.

euge:
It would need to retain the flavor & bitterness primarily.
