An unintended and often unreported consequence of dry hopping is the increase in real extract derived from hops and subsequent refermentation. This can result in over-attenuation, leading to potentially dangerous overcarbonation in packaged beer, particularly bottle-conditioned beer. This talk examines why over-attenuation may occur in dry-hopped beer and offers practical considerations to prevent over-carbonation.
