Hop Oils

Description

Hop oils available today are natural products produced using whole cone hops or CO2 hop extract. Both are slightly yellow in color and contain the complete range of hop essential oils. Hop oils are variety specific and can be used at any stage of the brewing process – kettle, fermenter, or post-fermentation.

Pure hop oils derived from different hop oil products. see below for the spectrum. Applications will be the same.

Advantages

  • ENHANCE hop flavor and aroma with NO added bitterness
  • GENERATE higher beer yields by decreasing vegetative matter
  • IMPROVE consistency with a uniform product
  • LOWER annual shipping costs and save on storage space needs
  • DECREASE waste and reduce environmental impact

Usage & Methods

  • Dosing rates should be determined by running bench-top trials (link to hop oil testing in bottles and kegs) on smaller samples first, ranges of dosing based on alcohol strength and style, starting low and working up to desired levels.
  • Dry hop aroma/flavor in hop forward beers (5 ppm – 30 ppm) = 0.6 grams/bbl. – 3.5 grams/bbl.
  • Dry hop aroma/flavor in lagers / pils  = 0.012 grams/bbl. – 0.24 grams/bbl.

Notes & Suggestions

  • Adding hop oil in the kettle will add a late hop flavor profile
  • Hop oil additions versus pre and post-filtration may result in significantly different aroma/flavor attributes in the beer by concentrating the polar compounds (i.e. terpenes) when filtering

Package & Storage

  • Hop oil dilutions (1:100) can be stored for up to a month if opened weekly. Up to one year if unopened.
  • Pure hop oil is considered a flammable material and cannot be shipped via air, only ground is acceptable
