Here are all the nitty gritty details:
Developed by Yakima Chief – Hopunion, Cryo Hops represent the most innovative technology in hop processing. They use 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.
