The pre-isomerization system EASYOMER allows the economic use of hop products (natural hops, pellets, extract) due to a significantly increased yield of bitter substances. The compact unit can easily be integrated into an existing brew house.
EASYOMER optimizes the yield of bitter acids from hops. A new, scientifically proven heat treatment technique with hop specific parameters (temperature, pressure, pH, concentration, time) supports the solubility of iso-alpha acids. They remain dissolved to a particular high degree up to the finished beer. Since the pre-isomerization stage is separate from the brewing process (wort boiling), this highly efficient method complies with the German Purity Law “Reinheitsgebot” and has no negative impact on the aroma profile of the beer. By using existing process equipment, CIP systems and dosing pumps for the addition of hop bitters, the investment costs can be minimized. Raw material savings and low capital costs result in a short amortization period and fast pay-back. With EASYOMER hops use can be reduced by up to 30 %.
