LupuLN2â„¢ hop powder and pellets are produced from whole leaf hops using YCH HOPSâ€™ proprietary cryogenic separation process that preserves all components of each fraction.
LupuLN2 is purified lupulin powder containing most of the resin compounds and aromatic oils derived directly from whole hop flowers. It is ideal for use in the whirlpool or fermenter for imparting intense hop flavor and aroma with minimal vegetal flavor and improved yield. Used in combination with ResinateÂ® CO2 extract, LupuLN2 can add hop aroma and flavor to the end of boil or in dry hopping for a twofold approach to achieving superior brewery efficiency without sacrificing flavor. Depending on how much pellet or whole leaf is replaced by either of these products, breweries may see significant improvements in beer yield which contribute to both the bottom line and sustainability mission of YCH and many of our customers.
APPLICATION AND USAGE
LupuLN2 may be used anywhere pellet hops can be used and are best used for late kettle and dry hopÂ additions. As a starting point for recipe formulation or modification dose rate is estimated at 50% of pellets
by weight. It is best used in beers defined by theirÂ hop flavor and aroma with hop loads of at least 1 lb/bbl in late kettle or dry hop additions where a larger
yield increase will occur from substituting out pelletsÂ or whole leaf.
LupuLN2 is packaged inside nitrogen flushed, flexible, foil pouches and shipped in cardboard cartons.
LupuLN2 should be stored near-freezing, preferably between 30Â°F and 41Â°F (-1Â°C and 5Â°C).Â For best results, LupuLN2 should be used within three (3) years of package date.Â Storage stability does vary per variety and can be negatively affected by exposure to oxygen, heat and/or light.
