FLEX® Flowable C02 Hop Extract
Alpha: approx. 65%
John I. Haas, Inc. and the Barth-Haas Group introduce FLEX®, a new beer bittering hop product that provides improved brewhouse efficiency and flexibility as a concentrated, highly flowable CO2 hop extract. FLEX® is designed to reduce wort losses and provide the clean bittering you need for your beer in a convenient, easy to use form. FLEX® is formulated purely from hops and is an excellent alternative to hop powders, pellets and standard CO2 extract. If you’re looking for great performance in a pure resin hop extract for beer bittering with the added benefit of flowability at room temperature, you owe it to yourself to try FLEX®.
HIGH ALPHA ACID CONCENTRATION
FLEX® contains approximately 65% alpha acids and provides greater efficiency in shipping and storage with its more than 75% reduction in product weight compared to standard T90 hop pellets.
Our proprietary processing technology results in a CO2 hop resin with low viscosity at room temperature that, unlike regular CO2 extracts, makes it easy to measure and dose.
NO HOP SOLIDS!
With FLEX® you needn’t worry about costly losses associated with wort retention in hop solids and poor whirlpool performance due to excess trub.
HIGH BITTERNESS UTILIZATION
Because the alpha acids from FLEX® are dosed in a liquid form, bitterness utilization is typically improved over T90 hop pellets by 10-20%, relative.
NOTHING BUT PURE HOPS
FLEX® is formulated using only hop lupulin components in their native form derived from pure supercritical CO2 extraction.
NO SPECIAL DOSING REQUIREMENTS OR CALCULATIONS
It is recommended that FLEX® be dosed directly to the brew kettle at the beginning of boil. Use a typical formula for alpha dosing assuming 25-35% utilization to the final beer; adjust as needed.
