Simcoe CRYO LupuLN2® Pellet Hops
A versatile and highly coveted variety known for its bold and distinctive flavours. Developed in Washington State, Simcoe hops bring forth an aromatic journey through a pine forest with hints of grapefruit and passionfruit. Their robust flavour profile features resinous pine notes complemented by citrus undertones, adding a unique and assertive hop presence to your beers. With their moderate to high alpha acid content, Simcoe hops contribute both bitterness and complexity to your brews.
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 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.
