    Recommended Bittering Hops Extracts

    Wondering if anyone has a favorite hops extract they like to use for bittering. Hoping for something that's added to the kettle and is low in CoHumulone, or at least consistent with its CoHumulone %.

    CO2 Extract for bittering

    Simcoe has been the smoothest I have used
    Good success with Warrior too

    In general I find that bittering with extract in general, when compared to and equivalent alpha dose of T90, will come off as lower perceived bitterness. Theory behind this is that quality extract has less humulinones that may contribute to lingering bitterness. That said I have found lower CO-H extract tends to have less perceived bitterness than other higher CO-H extract varieties.
    Honestly I will vary the extract based on what I’m looking for, a little lingering bitterness in the right beer isn’t always bad and can provide a balance

    check out Flex - FLEX is for use per bittering, pourable at room temperature.

    Yes, I'd been looking into Flex. Wondering what its co-humulone fraction is, however. Anyone know?
