HopInspiration® is comprised of products for bitterness addition, late hop flavour and dry hop aroma. Further natural extracts have also been used to create the HopPlus® range, offering unique, balanced flavours for specialty beers.
Designed to replace the addition of kettle bittering hops or late hopping additions and enable a flexible and reproducible solution to the brewer for standardised hop bittering, HopAlpha® allows you to add the desired IBU’s to a range of beer styles. The range reduces the variability of using raw hops or pellets, while also increasing capacity in the brewing kettle, whilst offering further benefits such as light stability and foam head retention.
HopShot® will add individual late hop character and flavour to your beer, offering a broad spectrum of natural hop flavour such as spicy, floral, herbal, citrus and fruity, and replacing late hop or whirlpool additions of hop cones or pellets. These hop oil fractions enable addition of specific hop flavours and characteristics, post fermentation whilst reducing variation and the need to remove spent hop matter.
HopBurst® delivers dry hop aroma without the variability and beer loss associated with conventional hop pellet or cone use. Volatile hop oil components are distilled from hops using our proprietary technology to give a soluble, intense burst of hop aroma. The range includes dry hop extracts made from most hop varieties in commercial use.
HopSensation® hop product formulations combine hop varietal oils to provide the brewer with outstanding natural aroma and flavour, to produce a multi-layered and unique hop character. Blending a wide range of international hops, from both traditional and emerging areas of hop growth, the range creates a dramatic sensory depth effect and an experience for the senses.
The HopPlus® range offers an innovative and totally natural method of adding fruit and botanical character to specialty beer in a balanced way, without resulting haze and fermentable sugars. Natural extracts are blended with hop extracts to create, unique, all natural flavour profiles. Dosed at the 5-10g/hl rate to offer a simple, natural method of consistent flavour addition to the brew.
