THE CRYO HOPS® PROCESS Derived from the Greek word ‘kryos’, meaning frost, CRYO HOPS is an industry-leading, cryogenic hop-processing technology used to separate whole cones into two components—concentrated lupulin and bract. Each component of the hop is preserved using low temperatures in a nitrogen-rich environment during the entire process, from separation to pelleting. This proprietary process displaces oxygen throughout the system, increasing product quality and reducing the oxidation of the lupulin.
WHAT IS CRYO HOPS®? CRYO HOPS is the concentrated lupulin of whole-leaf hops containing resins and aromatic oils. It is designed to provide intense hop flavor and aroma, enabling brewers to efficiently dose large quantities of alpha acids and oils without introducing astringent flavors or vegetative material.
INTRODUCING CRYO HOPS® INTO BEER: CRYO HOPS can be utilized anywhere whole-leaf hops and hop pellets are traditionally applied.
KETTLE: Late additions only; early kettle additions should be avoided to prevent boiling out the intense aroma characteristics.
KNOCKOUT: Due to fine particle size, there is low risk of clogging heat exchangers.
WHIRLPOOL: Whirlpool additions are an excellent way to increase aroma and reduce trub load from large, late additions.
FERMENTER: Use in the fermenter is an excellent way to increase aroma while reducing trub loss. CRYO HOPS will settle out during normal conditioning and can be fined, filtered or centrifuged as normal.
RECIPE ADAPTATION Regardless of application, early trials indicate CRYO HOPS beers showcase pronounced juicy and resinous flavors with reduced grassy characteristics. As a result, some brewers recommend using CRYO HOPS in conjunction with T-90 pellets to ensure the complexity and flavors of the whole hop cone are retained.
