I’m really anxious to get a lambic or two started. Is there a quicker way to age hops than to leave them for 1-2 years? I mean, I’m all for patience in brewing, but I would prefer to brew something that I could at least be blending in a year. If I’m waiting 1-3 years before using hops, then another 2-3 before drinking my lambic, I’m not sure I have that much patience.
What if I used a low alpha hop at a low amount, just to get some of the antiseptic properties?
