CO2 Extract is an extract of hops produced by extraction of hop pellets using food grade carbon dioxide under liquid or supercritical conditions.
CO2 Extract contains alpha acids, beta acids and essential oils and is normally used as a partial or complete replacement for kettle hops or hop pellets.
CO2 Extract is an extremely stable, convenient and concentrated alternative to the use of hops or hop pellets.
The flavor characteristics of the original hops are maintained. Early addition of CO2 Extract to the kettle imparts mainly bitterness, while late addition allows carry over of a proportion of the volatile oils resulting in a beer with aromatic “late hop” character.
