I decided to try making a hop extract after trying some Sierra Nevada "Hop Hunter" which utilized a steam collected hop extract. I put 1 oz. of Equinox hops in 750 ml of vodka and let it sit in the dark for 2.5 weeks. I would check on it and swirl it once every day or so. The result at the end was pretty startling. The aroma of the hops came out intensely. Equinox has a citrus aroma and to the blind nose the extract smells like orange juice. After straining into a brown bottle I poured myself a teaspoon of the chartreuse colored tincture and it was mouth-puckeringly bitter. So I have to say that this experiment worked out well. Now I just have to figure out how best to use it for a dry-hop replacement (most likely at bottling time). It should take only a small amount to work.
