I haven’t brewed with it but have tried the 4 Pines Hop Hash XPA that uses lupulin powder. I was chatting to the Brewer one night about it but I think I was a few beers into the evening and don’t recall the specifics.

Anyway, here is a link:

Let us know what you do with it.

Thinking resin in the boil and flameout the LupuLN2.
Also recommended for dry hop.

Ben are you drinking any beers yet that you’ve brewed with the resin or LupuLN2?

I'll be interested in your thoughts once in the glass. Particularly regarding hop based astringency/bitterness.

I hope it ends up a lovely beer.

Cheers,

So… very nice and mellow bitterness, good aroma and hop flavour.

Another taste - solid bitterness. I have not ever really tasted astringency so cannot say if there is any or not. Good beer.
