USING HOP EXTRACTS


Hop extract is designed to be used during the boil. That's because the alpha acid extraction is the same for hop resin extract as it is for whole hops and pellets and the hop additions can still be staggered throughout the boiling process.



GUIDE TO DRY HOPS


The process of dry hopping refers to the addition of hops into your fermenter either during your fermentation period and/or after your primary fermentation period is nearing completion.


CRYO HOPS


Derived from the Greek word ‘kryos’, meaning frost, CRYO HOPS is a cryogenic hop-processing technology used to separate whole hop cones into two components - concentrated lupulin and bract.


DIP HOPPING


In 2012, Kirin, the Japanese brewing conglomerate, began talking about “dip hopping,” a technique that its brewers had developed that boosts pleasant hop aromas while suppressing or removing unpleasant off-flavors, like myrcene, and aromas that are derived from fermentation.
