Hops - Cryo Ekuanot
Popular among craft brewers because of its versatility a nd complex flavour and aroma profile. Usually a late boil addition, this hop variety boasts fruity aromas of lemon and lime, orange, tropical fruit, papaya and faint bubble gum.
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.
