Sabro Cryo Hops LupuLN2 - 1 Lb



US Sabro Cryohop Hop Pellets, 1 pound bulk package

Sabro Brand HBC 438 is a relatively new release from the Hop Breeding Company.  It's pedigree is the result of a unique cross pollination of a female newomexicanus hop.


While Sabro can be used as a bittering hop, it really shines in late additions and dry hop additions because of it's complexity of fruity and citrus flavor characteristics.  Add heavily in whirlpool and dry hop additions for best results.  Cryohops are extremely concentrated, with the majority of the bract (plant material or vegetal material in a hop bine) removed, so use 1 oz of Cryohops for every 2 oz of T90 Pellet Hops.

Aroma and Flavor

Sabro has a very distinct aroma profile, with big and complex citrus, stone fruit and tropical fruit balanced beautifully with coconut and light herbal characteristics.
