Developed by Yakima Chief Hopunion, Cryo Hops? represents the most innovative technology in hop processing. It uses a proprietary cryogenic separation process which preserves all components of each hop fraction.
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 dose large quantities of hops without introducing astringent flavors or vegetative cone material. During early R&D trials, brewers specifically cited ?juicy? and ?resinous? characteristics. Cryo Hops offers twice the resin content of traditional whole-leaf and hop pellet products, and should be dosed at approximately half the amount by weight.
Product availability includes Cascade, Citra? Brand HBC 394, Columbus, Ekuanot? Brand HBC 366, Loral? Brand HBC 291, Mosaic? Brand HBC 369, Palisade? Brand YCR 4, and Simcoe? Brand YCR 14 hops. Cryo Hops is available in hop pellet form.
Cryo Hops products are currently available to brewers via YCH HOPS and its distributor partners.
