PURE. FRESH. INTENSE.
AND MUCH MORE PROFITABLE.
It’s Genuine Hopzoil™
Hopzoil™ is the pure essential oil made from fresh hops, steam-distilled right out of the field at harvest time. Using this proprietary process, we are able to capture all of the fresh, intense, essential oils found only in fresh hops, leaving all the biomass behind.
More Profit in Every Batch
Dry-hopping can be frustrating and expensive. Brewers have learned that by using Hopzoil, they can reduce filtration losses, along with reduced labor, freight, and storage costs, and increase yield and aroma, leading to more profit out of every batch of beer brewed.
Brewers tell us… ”this is the future”.
A Better Way to Dry-Hop Beer.
Brewers who have either partially or fully substituted their dry-hopping with pellets for Hopzoil™, have reported increased yield and profit with each batch. Brewers report average yield gains of 7.5% to 15% or more.
That’s a lot of free beer.
In addition, reduced freight and storage costs, increased shelf-life and ease-of-use advantages all impact your bottom line, along with an increase in throughput, from reduced dry-hopping time.
Increase Shelf-Life of your IPAs
American hop-forward beer flavors typically “drop off a cliff” at 30-60 days. Tests are showing that using Hopzoil extends shelf life from 90 days to potentially 120-150 days or more. Hop aroma and flavor drop-off is mitigated by using as little as 2 ml/BBL added to bright beer.
Decrease Bittering Losses
Retain all the bitterness that is normally stripped during dry-hopping incremental fermentation. Solving DO2, re-attenuation, and diacetyl issues are all key advantages of Hopzoil. The MBAA Technical Report (Q3 2016) concludes that pure hop oil does not affect IBU test results.
Add Intense “Fresh-Hop” Aroma
Hopzoil™ provides an intense freshness that cannot be replicated with dried processed hops. The result captures the complex “fresh hop” aroma and flavor… that you can use year-round.
Looking for a “Wow” to help your beer stand apart from the crowd?
Want Consistency year-in, year-out? Look at TrueHOP™
There are times (such as when you have a production beer) that you need to have consistency in aroma and flavor with your historic use of processed hops. Switching from dry-hopping with processed pellets to FreshHOP™ Hopzoil, while it might be wonderful…it will be different. And for a production beer, “different” is not always good.
For those situations, we present TrueHOP™…the same steam-distilled, pure, essential hop oil that has been fractionalized and re-blended to match the oil profile of that same variety of processed hops. It’s still pure, it’s still solvent-free.
The TrueHOP™ version will match your existing dry-hopping aroma and flavor, while still imparting the shipping, storage, shelf-life and yield gain benefits of FreshHOP™ Hopzpoil.
We can even custom blend any variety of TrueHOP Hopzoil, so that it matches the oil profile you are looking for, with year-in, year-out consistency (minimum quantities apply).
Hopzoil™ Checks All The Boxes…
√ Reduce your hop bill on each batch.
• Think of Hopzoil™ as “liquid dry-hopping”.
• When you use Hopzoil™, you will want to reduce hop pellets.
√ Increase shelf-life of hop-forward beers.
• Avoid that hop-flavor drop-off. Increases shelf-life up to 120-150 days or more.
√ Reduce freight costs:
• One liter is ample to dose approx. 200 BBLs.
• One liter has equivalent aromatic oil to approx. 375-450 lbs of fresh hops (depending on variety)
• Two 1.1 liter bottles ship anywhere in the U.S. for only $10.29.
√ Reduce storage space:
• Just refrigerate. Does not need to take up expensive freezer space
√ Long shelf-life:
• Oil retains full potency in original container for years.
• “Best Before” date – 5 years from production
• Hop-forward beer retains aroma better over time.
√ Reduce your carbon-footprint:
• No fossil fuels used to dry hops
• Less to ship, less to store, less to waste.
Hopzoil™ starts with a different raw ingredient.
We start with fresh hops, which are available only at harvest time, right out of the field. Hopzoil™ does not use dried, processed hops. Fresh hops contain all the volatile, most aromatic oils, captured at the peak of freshness, and you can’t get any more fresh than this.
All brewers know that heat volatizes and evaporates these most aromatic of hop oils. That’s why a fresh hop ale tastes so different. You can’t put back into a raw ingredient what has been taken out during drying or processing. It’s made using our Proprietary Process.
Hopzoil™ takes fresh hops, and steam-distills them, right on the farm. We use pure steam, rather than a CO2 or other solvent-based extract process. This process allows us to capture “freshness” of fresh hops, retaining the intensely complex floral, citrus, tropical fruit and piney aromas, similar to what you would expect in any given variety, but more intense.
The result shouts “Intensely Fresh!”
Our process yields a very different result. Hopzoil™ provides an intense freshness that cannot be replicated with dried processed hops. The result captures “fresh hop” aroma and flavor…that you can use year-round.
