Hop Oil Type Noble Plus
Pure hop oils diluted in propylene glycol, resulting in a product diluted to 1:100
Hop Oil – Type NOBLE PLUS is produced from conventional hop extracts which are subsequently fractionated by means of CO2 extraction to enrich or decrease the concentration of specific aroma compounds.
Hop Oil – Type NOBLE PLUS has been specifically developed for additions prior to filtration. This product can completely or partially replace late hop additions in the brewhouse while still imparting a typical “late hop” aroma to the beer.
Hop oil recovery is considerably higher compared to conventional hopping methods, as the aroma compounds are not lost due to evaporation in the brewhouse.
Hop Oil – Type NOBLE PLUS contains a lower amount of the undesirable volatile hydrocarbon fraction, resulting in a more subtle and pleasant hop aroma. Depending on the quantity added and the type of beer, Hop Oil – Type NOBLE PLUS can impart floral, spicy and citrusy notes to beer.
In addition, Hop Oil – Type NOBLE PLUS has little influence on the sensory bitterness of beer.
It is suitable for use in beers brewed with conventional hop products as well as light stable beers to impart a more typical “late hop” character.
