WHAT ARE CRYO HOPS®?
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 flavour and aroma
Reduced grassy and vegetal characteristics
Increased yield through reduced brewhouse and cellar trub
What's the difference between Cryo Hops® Brand Pellets and generic concentrated lupulin pellets?
We recommend starting with an estimated dosing rate of Cryo Hops pellets at 40-50% of T-90 hop pellets by weight.
KETTLE: Late additions only; early kettle additions should be avoided to prevent boiling out the intense aroma characteristics.
POST-BOIL/WHIRLPOOL: Whirlpool additions are an excellent way to increase aroma and reduce trub load from large, late additions.
FERMENTATION: Using Cryo Hops® pellets in the fermenter is an excellent way to increase aroma while reducing trub loss.
DRY HOPPING: An excellent way to harness the massive aroma and flavor characteristics of Cryo Hops while reducing trub loss. Cryo Hops will settle out during normal conditioning and can be fined, filtered, or centrifuged as normal.
Robbie Harrigan - Yakima Chief Business Development (Homebrew) - "I am fully aware that the homebrew market is very sensitive to crop year and believes that newest crop year is best, however this is something Yakima Chief is keen to remove from the conversation. As I am sure you know, providing hops are packaged, shipped, and stored correctly, hops can last for many, many years. Our exacting standards of packaging, storage and refrigeration mean that a prior year's crop remains in premium condition. Furthermore, as I’m sure you know, hops can have vintages, much like wine grapes and some years can have particularly excellent crops. For example, 2018 Simcoe® is still something that is often discussed by brewers! This is one the main reasons that we don’t even print the crop year on the foil, as we believe this will lead people unfairly prejudging otherwise excellent hops!"
