LUPOMAX® enriched hop pellets are a natural hop product, concentrated in the resins and essential oils that give hops their distinctive character. They provide intense hop flavors and aromas combined with a decrease in vegetal and grassy attributes.
LUPOMAX® pellets are produced via the mechanical enrichment of lupulin under highly controlled conditions and low temperatures to protect the sensitive hop components.
LUPOMAX® has been designed to deliver optimized hop flavor. By reducing the vegetative matter, this pellet provides cleaner, more intense hop flavor without the undesirable grassy, astringent flavors.
They can be introduced into the brewing process anywhere Type 90 (T90) hop pellets are employed, but best practice is addition late in the kettle boil, to the whirlpool, or preferably as a dry-hop addition during fermentation or maturation.
LUPOMAX® pellets are hand selected for quality each crop year, gently processed, and designed for maximum consistency.

“Bigger, bolder, brighter! The reduced vegetative matter of LUPOMAX® pellets gives me a clean hop flavor and really saves on beer loss, too. Can be used at any stage in the brewing process, but it really shines where flavor intensity and reducing beer loss matter most, like dry hopping.” – Virgil McDonald, HAAS Innovations Brewmaster
