Dry Hopped Bud Light


No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you; I’m dry hopping Bud Light today. I borrowed this idea from one of the brewers at Anchor Brewing. He mentioned on a Brewing Network interview that this is his favorite way to see the differences between different hop varieties. They just buy a 12er of Bud Light, pop the caps, drop in a few pellets, and then taste the differences. It sounded like a great idea to me, so here we go!

There isn’t too much to talk about in terms of a ‘how-to’. Label and sanitize your caps, pop the caps, drop in some pellets, and re-cap. It’s a pretty straight forward process. I keep all my hops in mason jars, so it’s a pretty simple process for me to open a jar, steal a few pellets, and seal it back up with the foodsaver. The only real question was how many pellets to add to each bottle.
