Isohop® is a standardised solution of iso-a-acids (30% w/w) produced from CO2 hop extract. It is used to replace kettle bittering hops to improve hop utilisation or to adjust bitterness in beers that may have been under-hopped in the kettle.
Used by many of the best craft breweries in award winning beers worldwide.
Iso-a-acids are the native bittering acids found in traditionally hopped beer. Isohop is created from our CO2 Hop extraction to focus on the alpha acids to create clean and consistent bitterness using an all-aqueous process. Isohop® is for precise control of beer bitterness, Isohop® should be added post-fermentation to adjust the bitterness of the beer to the target bitterness units (BU). It may also provide an economic alternative to kettle hopping when performing high-gravity brewing. When hopping does not go according to plan, Isohop® will help to get back on target. Isohop® will contribute to foam stand and cling similar to that of traditional bitter hopping (whole hops, pellets, or CO2 extract). Isohop® will also act as a natural antimicrobial agent when added to beer. Isohop® provides a very good utilisation along with comparatively low cost.
