Yakima Chief Hops has come out with a new, innovative hop product! They've combined their novel cryo process with their hop compound analysis technology to create Cryo Pop™ Original Blend (formerly known as TRI 2304CR, which is still the name which appears on the label). Due to the complexities of biotransformation, the expected aroma profile of Cryo Pop™ Original Blend will vary depending on where in the brewing process it is used, providing brewers with a diverse array of options. This blend will exude peach, pineapple strawberry, guava, mango, and orange during active fermentation, and peach, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, pine and sweetgrass post fermentation. There are several usage scenarios and possibilities for using these Cryo Pop hops in your brew!
Single Hop Beers: Because Cryo Pop pellets have already been engineered with specific component ratios in mind, they can be used for 100% of the hop bill as an all-in-one solution for brewers desiring juicy peach, pineapple, grapefruit, and daiquiri-like aromas. They provide such powerful and dynamic aroma and flavor profiles that they can create a robust "single hop" beer with the use of one hop blend.
Blend Amplifier: Cryo Pop pellets can be used to amplify the character of other existing hop combinations. When used as a 20-40% portion of a hop bill, Cryo Pop pellets will elevate levels of geraniol, linalool, esters, and polyfunctional thiols, enhancing and elevating the characteristics of other hop varieties.
Biotransformation :Recent research suggests that high levels of monoterpene alcohols and polyfunctional thiols in a wort stream can create the conditions necessary for the yeast metabolism of hop-derived compounds, otherwise known as "biotransformation." Cryo Pop pellets are a perfect choice for loading whirlpool and active fermentation dry hop additions with these components, thus creating a dynamic environment for yeast and hops to provide maximum aroma expression.
This is a Cryo Hops® pellet blend that is loaded with compounds that survive harsh brewing processes including heat, fermentation and CO2 scrubbing. By maximizing concentrations of the most impactful and complementary hop compounds, they offer an incredibly powerful hop pellet that creates a true 'pop' of aromas in finished beers. Brewers can use this blend on its own, or to accentuate the fruity notes in other hops when combined with these other hops. Try the Cryo Pop Original Blend in your next beer and see what the buzz is all about!
