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 and Debittered Leaf.
LupuLN2 is 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 dose large
quantities of hops without introducing astringent flavors or vegetative
cone material. During early R&D trials, brewers specifically cited
‘juicy’ and ‘resinous’ characteristics. LupuLN2 offers twice the resin
content of traditional whole-leaf and hop pellet products, and should be
dosed at approximately half the amount by weight.
