Yesterday I used Hopshot (amarillo) for the first time. The write up on the NB website says it should be added to boiling wort for at least a minute or two. I add a 5ml shot with 1 minute left and a hop steep for another minute of two while it hook up the IC.
Now my IC and kettle are coated with a thick sticky but nice smelling gop. I managed to get the kettle clean with a good Oxyclean scrub but the IC is still coated. A 10 minute soak in StarSan did nothing. I’m going to try a long soak in Oxyclean next.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Is it only from the short boil time or does this happen with any use of Hopshot? This clean up would make me think twice before using it again.
