Developed by Yakima Chief Hopunion, Cryo Hops represents the most innovative technology in hop processing. It uses a proprietary cryogenic separation process which preserves all components of each hop fraction, producing two simultaneous co-products, LupuLN2 & Debittered Leaf. LupuLN2 is the concentrated lupulin of whole-leaf hops containing resins & aromatic oils. It is designed to provide intense hop flavor & aroma, enabling brewers to dose large quantities of hops without introducing astringent flavors or vegetative cone material. LupuLN2 offers twice the resin content of traditional whole leaf & hop pellet products, and should be dosed at approximately half the amount by weight.
