Magic Dust – A Hop Revolution?

May 2nd, 2017 Posted by Uncategorized 8 comments

You may remember last month we wrote about the brand new product called Lupulin Powder, or LupuLN2™ from our friends at YCH Hops:

We are the first brewery in New Zealand to import and use this product. LupuLN2 is essentially the concentrated lupulin from whole hop flowers, with all of the extra vegetable matter removed by a cryogenic separation process. This makes for a much more efficient brew, and as you’ll find out – it tastes really good too!
