Hops for home beer

To prepare a foamy drink, malt, yeast, water and hops are taken. The organoleptic properties of the finished product depend on the quality indicators of raw materials. At Prolitex, you can buy beer hops and other necessary ingredients to brew a drink with the desired taste and aroma.

 

Hops increase foam stability and shelf life. Experts identify more than 100 varieties, which are conditionally divided into bitter, aromatic and taste. The former contain more resins and less hop oil, are added at an early stage of wort preparation, and form the main bitterness of the drink. Hop composition:

 

  • Bitter substances (alpha acids) – increase foam resistance, prevent the development of pathogenic microflora in the product, promote protein coagulation.
  • Hop oil – essential oil. Depending on the variety, they give the beer certain aromatic properties.
  • Tannins – affect the degree of clarification of the drink, due to the high ability to bind to protein compounds and iron salts. 
  • Protein – during the production process, 30-50% of the total amount of protein gets into the finished beer from hops. A small volume practically does not affect the organoleptic properties of the finished product.
  • Minerals – 8%. 

By choosing certain types of malt and hops, adjusting the ratio of ingredients, beer producers achieve expressive flavors and aromas in different varieties. Experts count more than 20 thousand varieties of foamy drink, which are made from just four main components.
