Hop extract is a pure resin extract of hops by use of CO2 as a solvent in a supercritical fluid state.
The supercritical fluid state of CO2 is achieved when temperature and pressure are increased to a point where the CO2 takes on physical properties between a gas and fluid state, allowing it to be used as a solvent for extracting hop compounds with little damage or denaturing.
Benefits of Bittering with Hop Extract:
Reduced vegetal and polyphenol flavor contribution
Decreased loss of wort from hop mass in the kettle
Less foaming in the kettle when hops are added
Variety-specific hop character and related notes in beer
Increased alpha acid utilization
Higher stability of alpha acids, beta acids, and hop oils
Extended shelf life of the hops compared to whole cone or pellets
