YC-Iso is a purified solution of iso-alpha acids derived from a pure resin CO2 extract of hops. It gives you precise control of the pure bitter flavor of the hops in your beer - through post-fermentation bitterness adjustments - allowing for greater flexibility in your brewing process.
YC-Iso allows for the reduction of the iso-cohumulone level in beer. Because of its high utilization of hop alpha acids, it is an economical way to enhance the clean, crisp bitterness of your beer.
Shipping and storing are also easier and more economical - one 20 L container of YC-Iso will hop as much beer as two hop bales or eight boxes (20 Kg per box) of hop pellets.
