WHAT ARE CRYO HOPS?
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.
Cryo Hops® pellets are 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. Cryo Hops® pellets can be utilized anywhere whole-leaf hops and hop pellets are traditionally applied.
- Nearly twice the resin content of traditional T-90 hop pellets
- Intense contribution of hop flavor and aroma
- Reduced grassy and vegetal characteristics
- Increased yield through reduced brewhouse and cellar trub
- Cost savings and net increases in revenue per batch
