CRYO HOPS CITRA 1 Pound LupuLN2 Concentrated Hop Pellets


Here’s ONE POUND of factory packed of dual-purpose CITRA CRYO hop pellets.  Citra hops impart interesting citrus (hence the name) and tropical fruit characters to beer.  A commercial release, Citra is far and away my favorite hop for blending with.  Grapefruit, orange, and gooseberry up front with a tinge of  tropical mango fruit and a roasty rye aroma in the finished brew. Acid levels vary year to year, expect 10-14% Alpha.  There is no good substitute for Citra!   Citra is currently the “IT” hop for the US Market.  These hops come in a nitrogen flushed light and oxygen barrier foil pack so that they will remain usable for a long time.   LupuLN2® Cryo Hops® represent the most innovative hop product technology available.  You will get less of the “grassy” notes because the oils are concentrated and much of the weedy material has been removed.

LupuLN2™ hop powder and pellets are produced from whole leaf hops using YCH HOPS’ proprietary cryogenic separation process that preserves all components of each fraction.  Utilizing industry leading cryogenic processing whole-leaf hops are separated into lupulin and bract at extremely low temperatures to preserve oils and resins and get rid of the vegetable matter.  No more weedy taste or aroma!

LupuLN2 is purified lupulin powder containing most of the resin compounds and aromatic oils derived directly from whole hop flowers. It is ideal for use in the whirlpool or fermenter for imparting intense hop flavor and aroma with minimal vegetal flavor and improved yield.  LupuLN2 can add hop aroma and flavor to the end of boil or in dry hopping  to achieve superior brewery efficiency without sacrificing flavor. Depending on how much pellet or whole leaf is replaced by either of these products, breweries may see significant improvements in beer yield which contribute to both the bottom line and sustainability mission of YCH and many of our customers.

APPLICATION AND USAGE:  LupuLN2 may be used anywhere pellet hops can be used and are best used for late kettle and dry hop additions. As a starting point for recipe formulation or modification dose rate is estimated at 50% of pellets by weight. It is best used in beers defined by their hop flavor and aroma with hop loads of at least 1 lb/bbl in late kettle or dry hop additions where a larger yield increase will occur from substituting out pellets or whole leaf.

These hops come in a nitrogen flushed light and oxygen barrier foil pack so that they will remain useable for a long time.  We sell enough of these so that they will be consistently fresh for you.
