Microbrew Hops Oils

What are Microbrew Hops Oils?
This product is a pure essential oil obtained through a proprietary "pure steam distillation" process using the fresh (not dried) hop flowers, and is a Hopzoil™ product of Glacier Hops Ranch, in Whitefish, MT. 

What is it for?
Brewers & Microbrewers use Hopzoil™ profiles to add back the volatile, aromatic oils, which are only found to that extent in fresh hops. Because they are pure oils, they have no bittering properties, and do not contain Alpha nor Beta acids.

What value does this add?
When substituting Hopzoil™ for dry-hop pellets, filtration and labor losses greatly decrease allowing you to increase yields and profit, averaging gains of 7.5% - 15%. Hopzoil™ also increases shelf-life from 90-120 days when using as little as 2ml/BBL. 

Additional Hopzoil™ Facts:
  • Best way to think of this product is 'liquid dry-hopping.'

  • One liter provides equivalent pure oil to approximately 370-440 lbs of fresh hops. 
  • Only requires refrigeration, rather than freezing.
