I cant find much on this, other than a GEB sponsors thread that has been closed down.

Has anybody tried this product yet? would they recommend it?

Bump. Just saw this for sale at the malt miller and I'm curious but can't find any info on it anywhere.

I've recently used them. I've not kegged the beer yet so can't really say much about the flavour. But I will say that they are a pain in the **** to get into the beer! Suggesting they are soluble in cold beer is rediculous. I had to mix them with warm water and even then they didn't easily dissolve.

Once I worked that was done they looked like milky tea which was a bit odd. Got another 15ml to try. Fingers crossed they work as described as I'd love to replace the dry hops in the neipas I make as I end up losing about 7 litres of beer.

Excellent, I look forward to hearing how the beer turns out. The thought of stirring into water first seems like a sure way to get oxygen into them.

You boil the water first to get rid of the o2.

well, defo don’t keg hop with them! They just sank to the bottom and ruined the beer for at least the first third.
I haven’t bothered since those 2 brews. They are just a PITA to dissolve and get into the beer. They taste good tho when you manage it.

It was mostly user error I suspect. I’m sure they do what they say when you get the hang of how to use them.
