Citra Cryo Hop Pellets 1 OZ
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 significantly reduced grassy character.
Additionally, the lower dosage rate of the concentrated powder reduces the volume of trub and therefore, kettle loss.
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.
Citra hops are perfumed with tropical and citrus notes that make it a great flavor and aroma addition to your brew.
Citra hops offer an array fruit aromas ranging from grapefruit, melon, lime, gooseberry, passion fruit, lychee, and mango.
Flavor Descriptors: Grapefruit, melon, lime, gooseberry, passion fruit, lychee, and mango.
