This term keeps popping up...I get visions of finding my supply hiding in the dark corners of my garage....or getting to the Hb shop and finding a nasty person has bought the last 10 packets of Fuggles!
Anyway...what is it?

We should answer the above in the manner of Call My Bluff. So it's a small furry animal.

Enzymes from hops creating extra fermentables during dry hopping

It's when you add dry hops post fermentation and your beer ferments a bit more thanks to the diastase in some hops. You often end up with diacetyl in the finished beer.
