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,

Lusty.

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.

Just out of interest, when it comes to recipe design how do you handle these in the likes of Beersmith etc? I looked into hopshots at one time but couldn't make sense of them in beersmith. Online info/advice seemed to be wrong.

Just out of interest, .


Hopshots are different I think.

I put the resin down as ISOhops, or CO2 extract or something and it seems to work.
The LupLN2 I manually added with the aa%

I tried the same thing for hopshots - they're a resin so I used the “CO2 hop extract” option but the numbers just didn't seem to add up… no value I entered for Alpha% seemed to work in a linear fashion with regard to amount(ml) vs boil time over a range of IBU's?

Big fan of the resin.
Has that real dank IPA bitterness I have been looking for.
Perhaps a function of brewing size that breweries find it easier to get that than a homebrewer?

I’ve been super interested in this Ben. Glad that it’s worked out for you and you’ve got what you were after.

Cheers,

Really impressed actually.
Brewed with the Simcoe today and am keen to taste that one eventually.

17 Posted: Tuesday, December 19, 2017 2:07 PM

I’ve got some Citra and Mosiac LupuLN2 coming in my next order from brewman. Looking forward to seeing what I can produce with it.

Interesting that you say this Ben. I have found that no matter what hopping techniques or rates I use, I can never quite replicate the really juicy, resinous or dank characteristics of commercial IPAs or even some of the more heavily late-hopped pale ales. I’m producing nice beers, but just can’t seem to get exactly what I’m after. I’ve been reading around and there seems to be some suggestion that the small amounts of O2 that gets into the beer while bulk-priming and botting can diminish the hop flavours I’m after, which makes achieving these flavours difficult unless you are kegging.

I have been thinking about adding some resin in the bottling bucket, to see if that can produce what I’m looking for. I can’t find anything online about someone giving this a go, so I think I’ll experiment with it.

Alternately, maybe the LupuLN2 will be the answer.

At what point in the boil did you add the resin?
