FLEX® is a 100% all-natural, concentrated alpha hop product that’s compact, so it’s easy to ship and easy to store. And extremely flowable, so it’s easy to dose, right from the bottle. But what brewers love most is the taste—because FLEX® gives you a clean, bright bitterness that brings out the best in any style of beer.
“The biggest thing for me was that we liked it more—FLEX® tasted better. You ask any brewer, the preference is always going to be for what tastes better. After the trials, we found out that we actually save a little bit of money using it, primarily because the storage and shipping is so much less.” – Davin Bartosch, Wiseacre Brewing Co.
Contains approximately 65% alpha acids for greater efficiency in shipping and storage, with 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 10-20%, relative.
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, so there’s less loss associated with wort retention in hop solids, and less in the trub pile.
Because FLEX contains no vegetal matter, it produces a clean, specific bitterness and an alpha that’s more consistent, crop year to crop year.
Doses 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.
