Hexa Iso-Extract 10%

Description

Hexa Iso-Extract is an aqueous solution of the potassium salts of hexahydro-iso-alpha acids produced entirely from CO2-extract. Hexa will greatly enhance beer foam when used as a post fermentation replacement for a proportion of the regular bittering. In the absence of normal alpha and iso- alpha acid, Hexa will give complete protection against development of light-struck flavors.

Advantages

  • Light-stable
  • Foam enhancement
  • Sensory bitterness is similar to iso-alpha acids

Usage & Methods 

  • 3 ppm up to 5 ppm for improved foam
  • Include link for bench-top testing in bottles or kegs
    1. Good – add product to empty vessel and push with nitrogen (NOT CO2) into beer line when starting to fill tank
    2. Better – Add product to empty beer keg and fill with pH 8-9 adjusted de-aerated, de-ionized water and push with nitrogen (NOT CO2) into beer line when starting to fill tank
    3. Best – meter the concentrated product into transfer stream using a diaphragm pump. Attempt to delivery evenly throughout 80% of the transfer of beer. Dispense solution into the beer transfer stream pre filtration

Notes & Recommendations

  • Hexa contributes a bitterness profile like that of iso-alpha acids. 1 ppm of hexa will contribute 1 – 1 IBU’s of bitterness
  • Post fermentation for best utilization and efficiency
  • Inject on suction side of beer transfer pump
  • Do not add to DE slurry tanks
  • Make sure introduced at least 5 Meters upstream of filter
  • Diluting with beer lowers utilization and can result in precipitation of resins

Package & Shipping

  • Product will freeze – must ship next day air during winter months
  • Only use nitrogen to purge container headspace free of air – CO2 will react causing precipitation
