Yeah, you're right, I should have used "efficiency" rather than "utilization". Correcting the post now.

Thanks for that. The whole part up to the parenthesis is bogus.

comment Will Dry Hopping Add Bitterness?
That is correct, although not many alpha acids will be extracted into a cool aqueous product. They are very hydrophobic, so they don't like to be in water. As I said, most bitterness resulting from dry-hopping comes from polyphenols.
