YC-CO2 Hop Extract is a pure resin extract of hops containing hop oils, beta acids and alpha acids.
Clean - Yakima Chief's CO2 extraction process concentrates the soft resin portion of the hops to deliver "clean" bitterness and hop character to your beer.
Pure - YC-CO2 Hop Extract is virtually free of nitrates. Our pelleting process, with liquid nitrogen cooling, and our gentle CO2 extraction process allow us to selectively extract and preserve hop oils, alpha acids and beta acids.
Consistent - YC-CO2 Hop Extract will also improve physical stability and contribute to a more consistent beer. Yakima Chief's pelleting facility enables us to produce large homogeneous lots of pellets that are converted directly to uniform lots of YC-CO2 Hop Extract.
Easy - to handle and store - Available in a variety of sizes, YC-CO2 Hop Extract may be stored at room temperature or refrigerated. The fresh hop aroma and flavor characteristics remain stable for extended storage periods. YC-CO2 Hop Extract can be standardized to any concentration on request.
YC-CO2 Hop Extract can be produced from any hop variety - we certify the varietal integrity of every lot. Alpha-acid samples are routinely checked during processing for conformance to customer specifications.
