The YC-HopAroma extract difference can be described in what it doesn't do, as well as in what it does. Virtually free of alpha acids, it will not provide any bitterness or contribute to a sun-struck flavor. The hop oil fraction derived from a pure resin CO2 extract of hops preserves all of the essential hop oils in the same proportion as found in leaf hops or pellets. YC-HopAroma is designed to provide hop character to your beer independent of the level of bitterness. The primary use of YC-HopAroma is to replace or reinforce the aroma fraction of the traditional kettle hop bill.
The quality of our hop products is assured through grower experience, our Best Management Practices, and ISO 9001 certification in all operations including pelleting and CO2 extraction.
