About Cryo Hops:
Derived from the Greek word ‘kryos’, meaning frost, Cryo Hops, Developed by Yakima Chief – Hopunion, represent the most innovative technology in hop processing. A proprietary cryogenic separation process preserves all components of each hop fraction. Whole hop cones are separated into concentrated lupulin hop powder LupuLN and low-alpha bract(Debittered Leaf) via exposure to extremely low temperatures in a nitrogen-rich production atmosphere, eliminating opportunities for oxidation.
To preserve the sensitive resins and oils, Cryo Hops pellets are produced at a mean temperature of 63 degrees Fahrenheit. This is approximately 30 degrees cooler than average T-90 hop pellet production temperatures at YCH, and significantly cooler than other known pelleting operations.
LupuLN2 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.
Debittered Leaf is the concentrated bract of whole-leaf hops which has been separated from the lupulin glands. It is a high-quality, low-alpha product which retains variety-specific aroma and flavor characteristics and can be derived from any hop brand. The result is an enticing Northwest twist on traditional, low-alpha (noble) hops.
Cryo Hops products are produced in Sunnyside, Washington by Yakima Chief – Hopunion (YCH) is a 100% grower-owned, global hop supplier focused on providing premium quality hops.
