Concentrated lupulin for intense hop flavor and aroma
WHAT ARE HOP 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.

HOW TO BREW WITH CRYO HOPS®?
We recommend adapting any recipe by substituting 40g of Cryo Hops pellets either 25g of T-90 pellets or 15g American Noble Hops pellets for every 100g of T-90 used. For new recipes we recommend starting with an estimated dosing rate of Cryo Hops pellets at 40-50% of T-90 hop pellets by weight. Cryo Hops can be utilized anywhere whole leaf hops and hop pellets are traditionally applied.
