Hop rocket lift-off
May 31, 2021 — Greve, Denmark
We are quite excited about our recent purchase on the hop recirculation front. We have taken into commission a hop rocket from our friends at 6ix Fabdec and we are already seeing some great results.
Hop dosage remains the same, but we are seeing increased yields along with significant hop flavor enhancement. Using the hop rocket brings out a much brighter hop profile, akin to a true expression of the hop pellets.
Our new Hop-IX hop rocket from 6ix Fabdec.
Subsequently, the hop rocket allows us to explore a greater depth of flavor for any given hop by playing with the recirculation time itself. With the enhanced integration that it provides, we can pull out stronger yet smoother flavors along with additional taste notes that might not be as apparent without using the rocket.
Fine-tuning the speed of the recirculation.
Some of the beers that have been given the hop rocket treatment include recently released Hollow Names, River Kings and Glimpse.
We can definitely taste the difference and we hope you can too.
All the best,
Founder and CEO
