The Zythos Single Hop Experiment - Extract Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

The Zythos Single Hop Experiment - Extract Beer Brewing Kit (5 Gallons)

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

(Makes 5 Gallons) We recently had a simple, yet exciting idea: What if we brewed the same recipe, used the same yeast, but changed one thing - the flavor, aroma, and dry hop additions using one hop varietal. That way we could take two beers that are close to identical and pick out the differences in just the hop flavors and aromas! And thus, the Single Hop Experiment was born. This recipe is based off of a simple Pale Ale: Ultralight malt extract, Crystal 15L, Magnum bittering hops, and then a single other hop for the rest of the additions. The malt in this recipe is basic and fairly neutral, the bittering clean and consistent, but the flavor and aroma from the late hop additions will vary; sometimes dramatically! Ever wanted to know what your favorite hop really is? Brew a few of these different Single Hop Experiment recipes to find out!

Liquid Malt Extract (LME) vs. Dried Malt Extract (DME)
MoreBeer! recipe kits are offered in both Liquid Malt Extract and Dry Malt Extract so that our customers can choose the format that best suits their needs and brewing style. LME is a viscous liquid, similar in consistency to maple syrup. In addition to being the more affordable option, many brewers find LME easier to handle than dry extract. DME is more condensed and comes in a powder format that is similar to baking flour. Although it’s a little more costly, DME is naturally lighter in color and stays fresher for longer. We highly recommend DME when brewing light colored beers.

surprisingly good
I really knew nothing about this hop. The profile really was super though, I thought it something like cascade, but a bit more exotic. I will buy some of these hops and play.

While it stood alone just fine, it seems a waste as a bittering hop and would be complimented well as an aroma/flavor hop. So I knock one star just because you could make it better by adding some complements like amarillo, citra, simcoe, or yes, mosaic.

This was one of my first All grain kits! I had heard about it from a fellow brewer and he had done the extract version. Excellent instructions made it easy for a rookie, and the Final product was excellent, one of my favorite recipes!

I brewed this and my buddy brewed the Mosaic. Both of these are fantastic. I also blended the two together for an extra special treat!
