FLEX® is easy to ship, easy to Store, and helps beer flavors shine.
FLEX® is an innovative hop product designed for efficient bittering performance. It’s highly flowable at room temperature so it’s easy to use. FLEX® is made from pure hops, but without any hop solids or vegetive matter, which reduces wort loss and improves clean up. But what brewers are discovering is that adding FLEX® to your boil creates a clean, bright canvas that makes just about any style of beer shine.
“We’re known for pilsner—I think it’s the epitome of balance when it comes to beer,” says Davin Bartosh, co-owner of Wiseacre Brewing Company in Memphis, Tennessee. “You want something that’s sweet but clears your palate really fast, and is nice and bracingly bitter as well. FLEX gives us a veryspecific bitterness that’s cleaner, less earthy, less vegetal. We use FLEX in all
our beers, it just makes them taste better.”
HIGH ALPHA ACID CONCENTRATION
Contains approximately 65% alpha acids for greater efficiency in shipping and storage, with more than 75% reduction in product weight compared to standard T90 hop pellets.
HIGH BITTERNESS UTILIZATION
Because the alpha acids from FLEX are dosed in a liquid form, bitterness utilization is typically improved over T90 hop pellets by 10-20%, relative.
Our proprietary processing technology results in a CO2 hop resin with low viscosity at room temperature, which makes it easy to measure and dose.
MADE FROM 100% PURE HOPS
FLEX is formulated using only hop lupulin components in their native form, so there’s less loss associated with wort retention in hop solids, and less in the trub pile.
CLEAN BITTERNESS AND CONSISTENCY
Because FLEX contains no vegetal matter, it produces a clean, specific bitterness and an alpha that’s more consistent, crop year to crop year.
NO SPECIAL DOSING REQUIREMENTS OR CALCULATIONS
Doses directly to the brew kettle at the beginning of boil. Use a typical formula for alpha dosing assuming 25-35% utilization to the final beer; adjust as needed.
