Amber, aqueous solution of the potassium salts of primarily hexahydro iso-alpha acids.
Hexa Iso-Extract (Hexa) is an aqueous solution of the potassium salts of hexahydro iso-alpha acids derived exclusively from CO2 extract.
Hexa greatly enhances beer foam when used as a post-fermentation replacement for a portion of conventional bittering products.
Hexa provides protection against lightstruck flavor when used as the sole source for bitterness or in combination with other light stable hop products.
Hexa provides 1.0 to 1.2 times the sensory bitterness compared to that achieved with conventional hop products. The actual intensity of bitterness depends primarily on the quantity of bittering units and the type of beer. Therefore, the target number of bittering units must be determined in preliminary tests in order to achieve the correct level of sensory bitterness.
