Mosaic® CRYO LupuLN2® Pellet Hops
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® and Debittered Leaf.
LupuLN2 is the concentrated lupulin of whole-leaf hops containing resins and aromatic oils. It is designed to provide intense hop flavour and aroma, enabling brewers to dose large quantities of hops without introducing astringent flavours 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.
Mosaic hops feature relatively high alpha acids and low cohumulone content and display an array of enticing citrus, earthy and tropical aromas that transfer nicely into the finished product. Mosaic is great for modern American styles needing an earthy or tropical hop kick.
