The method of dry-hopping is now used in many small and large breweries all over the world to enhance the hop aroma flavor in the beer. In most cases this is done by simply adding hop pellets to the green beer in the fermentation tank.

However, this method does bear risks because usually it is not possible to avoid oxygen ingress in the beer and frequently the tanks foam over immediately when adding the hop pellets, leading to considerable losses.

The DryHOPNIK® system developed by ROLEC completely rules out any of the aforementioned risks. It produces a higher aroma yield and thus leads to a considerable saving of expensive aroma hops. This has been verified in a series of tests carried out at one of the largest hop processing companies.
