Hops - Cryo Cascade
Originating from the USDA-ARA breeding program, Cascade is an aroma-type cultivar bred in 1956 and released in 1972. It was developed by open pollination of a Fuggle seedling. Cascade is the most popular variety in craft brewing and is known for having a unique floral, spicy and citrus character with hints of grapefruit. Cascade has a balanced bittering potential.
Cryo hops are a revolutionary hop product developed by Canadian company Yakima Chief, and distributed by partner company YCH Hops.
The production begins by cryogenic separation of what they have named “LupuLN2®” and the remaining debittered leaf content
LupuLN2® is the concentration of resins and aromatic oils that make up the plants lupulin. This allows for heavy, late addition hopping to provide intense hop flavour and aroma, while avoiding astringency. Using Cryo Hops at about half the dosage, by weight, provides a more intense juicy and resinous character, than its whole hop counterpart.
