FLOWABLE HOPS FOR EFFICIENT BEER BITTERING
FLEX® is a 100% all-natural hop product crafted to be pourable at room temperature, and to provide brewing flexibility and improved brew house efficiency. Even though it’s made using sophisticated processing technology, FLEX is actually just like fresh-squeezed hops.
FLEX is pure concentrated hops. There’s no vegetal matter, so there’s no wort loss. It’s easier to handle and dose, with less shipping and storage costs, and no disposal of spent hops or hop pellets.
FLEX contains approximately 60% 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.
Because the alpha acids from FLEX are dosed in a liquid form, bitterness utilization is typically improved over T90 hop pellets by more than 10%.
Our proprietary processing technology results in a CO2 hop resin with low viscosity at room temperature, which makes it easy to measure and dose.
FLEX is formulated using only hop lupulin components in their native form.
With FLEX you needn’t worry about costly losses associated with wort retention in hop solids. Also solved: the problem of poor whirlpool performance due to excess trub.
We recommend dosing FLEX directly to the brew kettle at the beginning of boil. Use a typical formula for alpha dosing assuming 40% utilization to the final beer; adjust as needed.
FLEX is currently available in three sizes: 10 kg and 2kg (shown below) and a 1 kg size.
10.0 kg (22.05 lb)
2.0 kg (4.41 lb)
