CRYO HOPS® provide brewers with the ability to get gigantic hop character while reducing astringent and unpleasant vegetal flavors.  With a substantially higher oil and resin content, LupuLN2 powder (pelletized) offers up all the flavor and aroma of a heavily hopped beer, but with a significanly reduced grassy character.  Additionally, the lower dosage rate of the concentrated powder reduces the volume of trub and therefore, kettle loss.  Using CRYO HOPS®  you will net more beer that is clearer!

Typical usage of CRYO HOPS® would be roughly 50% of standard T-90 pellets.  LupuLN2 powder can be used in any application where traditional hop products are utilized, including: Bittering, Kettle, Whirlpool and even direct to the fermentor.  It is suggested that you use CRYO HOPS® as late additions, in the whirlpool or dry hop, as the volatile aromatic compounds will be driven off if added early in the boil.

AA% Range: 24-26%
Oil Content: 3.5-5.5%

CRYO HOPS® are an innovative hop product that is made by separating the lupulin from the hop flower using cryogenic processing.  The result is a product with twice the potency of T90 pellets, with reduced astringency and vegetative material.

Note: These hops come pelletized. The powder is compressed into pellet form to make handling easier.

Aroma and flavor!
The most aroma i’ve ever gotten! Used 12 oz in a 15 gallon batch and it was great. Well received at a wedding, served about 100 people and it was gone by the end of the night! Definitely will use them again!

Great way to get hop nose without bitterness
I use Citra, Simcoe and Mosaic Cryo hops to dry hop my IPAs after primary fermentation. The hop nose and flavor are boosted without the vegetal or bitter aspects. Great stuff!!

Also getting amazing results from distilled hop oil added directly to the keg at 0.5 ml per 5 gallons.

Increases yield
I wouldn’t say that the flavor is any better than using pellet hops, but on big IPAs, putting half as much planet matter is probably a half gallon savings in trub. Worth the cost, to me.

Great and flavorful results. Have used for a batch with only flameout additions and also dry hopped in a number of batches as well. More flavor and less vegetable and grassy character. Would recommend for your next hoppy beer. Will be a staple in my future hop centric brews.

Good things come in small packages!
I used the Citra Cryo Hops in my go-to Pale Ale. The only thing I noticed was that these are twice the potency of the regular Citra Hop pellets. So I used 1oz of the Cryo hops for every 2oz I normally would use.

Do the math: 2 oz Citra hops = 2 x $2.99/oz = $6; 1 oz Citra Cryo hops = $5. Pretty much the same.

Can never have enough hop flavor.
I like these pellets. Double the regular. Nice for dry hopping.

These hops are great, but be careful, one ounce is like two ounces of regular
Holy crap, i had an Ipa that just didnt taste right, dry hopped in the keg with a packet of these and it totally changed the beer from "eh" to "Ill have another"!!!

Cryo Hops
I ordered Citra Cryo Hops to use in my IPA, I used 1oz at flame out and whirl pooled them while chilling the wort, then I dry hoped 1oz for 5 days. something to note the Cryo hops like to float on top of your beer so to get them in solution I added CO2 to the top of my fermenter and gave it a soft shake this seemed to work real well, Also the flavor and aroma comes out real quick so the need to dry hop for days with Cryo hops I don't feel is needed. I'm going to be testing some more with them and see how they do in the boil. so far I have been very impressed with the flavor and aroma they put in the final product!
