Optimized Hop Extracts

Rethink what an extract can do.

Compared to other hop-extracts, the Quantum Series tastes better, performs better, and is easier to use. It works with everything from Pils to Porters with no special handling required. Gone are the days of warming up your extract or scrubbing the sticky gunk out of your equipment.

Compared to hops and pellets, the Quantum Series offers a 100% utilization rate and can be used at any stage of the brewing process. It cuts down on shipping and storage costs by an order of magnitude, not to mention the labor savings from not having to lug boxes around.

Quantum Brite Quick Facts

This is an evolutionary leap forward in brewing technology. It’s a whole new ballgame. Let’s start with these simple bulletpoints for Quantum Brite.

Flavor Comes First

Compare these to the flavor of other extracts and it’s like night and day.

100% Utilization Rate

Quantum is immediately dispersed into solution. Less wait, more beer.

Logistical Cost Savings

Quantum weighs less, costs less to ship, and takes up less space.

No Yield Loss

Quantum is a liquid so there is nothing to soak up potential beer.

Way Less Expensive

Compare the price of Quantum to T90, whole hops, and other extracts.

No Special Handling

Easily flowable at cool, ambient, and warm temperatures. Seriously.

Built Entirely for Aroma

There are no acids in Quantum. These are built entirely for aroma.

True-to-Type

Quantum is varietal-specific and not an averaging of other oils.

“It’s been few and far between finding anything that compares to the kind of expression we’ve been getting from Abstrax products.”

Wayne Wambles

Brewmaster | Cigar City Brewing

Keep Your Workflow

Quantum goes right into your existing workflow with no modifications.

None of the Nasty

No chlorophyll, lipids, or waxes to pollute the delicate flavor/aroma.

Less Waste Water

Sending trub down the drain is literally sending money down the drain.

Better Sustainability

A drastic reduction in
total hop material to impart flavor & aroma.

Clean Finished Label

Use “hops oil” on your ingredient list. No natural flavors claim needed.

Zero Hop Creep

Quantum won’t impart any hop creep or cause lightstruck off-flavors.

Simple Storage

Quantum comes in lightproof bottles with
no need to refrigerate.

Increased Shelf Life

We’ve seen a 30% increase in shelf life due
to reduced oxidation.

How to Use Quantum Brite

We recommend that you add Quantum Brite at the coldest and latest point in the process - the brite tank.

Adding to the brite tank enables precise flavor control in the final beer, eliminating the risk of aromatic compound loss from additional processing. This method also prevents flavor alterations caused by yeast activity and biotransformation.

½ fl oz of Quantum Brite = 1 lb of T90

Start small: Try dosing Quantum Brite into a pint of your pale ale to see how it works.

Comparing Quantum

Compare Quantum Brite to T90, whole hops, and other popular dry-hop aroma oils on the market today.

Quantum Brite offers similar ease-of-use benefits as other hop extracts, but goes way, way further in terms of flavor, aroma, and handling. We have also had brewers reduce or replace their usage of T90 pellets because Quantum just tastes better. Take the challenge and see which beer you prefer.

Quantum Tastes Better

When you get down to it, nobody wants to use a product that makes their beer taste like garbage. Extracts have taken a bad rap because they can often add more problems than they solve and, frankly, they don’t always taste the greatest. We fully get it. That’s why, above all else, flavor and aroma come first with Quantum.

The Quantum Series is an evolutionary leap forward in aroma and brewing technology.

“The Quantum Series from Abstrax absolutely rules. The hop aroma and flavor are unbelievable. I haven't found any other hop product that produces such a pure bright hop expression. The cost savings are also a great bonus, but I'm far more excited about how fun the flavors are to play with.”

Tyler Thurman Head Brewer | Highland Park Brewery

The Problem with Hops

Hops have been cultivated since the year 736 - back when they were still using only three digits. A few things have changed.

Over the last few decades, the industry has recognized the drawbacks of using whole hops and has overwhelmingly shifted over to pellets like T90 and T45. These have been a revolutionary solution that has greatly increased the efficiencies and ease-of-use for brewing.

The jump from hops to pellets is tiny
compared to the leap from pellets to Quantum.

Quantum Brite

Quantum has been designed to outperform today’s options in every regard.

Quantum goes right into your existing workflow with no modifications required. Each product is a true-to-type varietal-specific extract. We aren’t creating mystery blends or averaging the oils from other hops. You know exactly what you’re getting and what you can expect on the other side. Quantum is less expensive than any other option on the market. Compare the price of Quantum to T90, whole hops, and other extracts. And, most importantly, Quantum just tastes better. Our process removes the nasty chlorophyll, lipids, and waxes that often pollute the flavor and aroma of hops, pellets, and other extracts.

Any way you slice it, Quantum is an evolutionary leap forward.

“Another great thing about your products we’ve noticed is that pricing, compared to potency, is by far the best in the industry. Other products we’ve tested cost a bit more and
usually take twice as much to reach acceptable aroma levels.”

“We did our experiment with Quantum Brite Cascade in our Pale Ale and, in a blind setting, everyone preferred the one using Quantum Brite. We’re developing an American IPA that uses a large amount of hops. Being a year-round beer, we’re looking at ways to increase efficiency, and using Quantum Brite is high on our list.”

Kevin Smolar M.S. Director of Brewery Operations | Sun King Brewery

ELD Specifications

  • Storage, Handling, and Usage

    Storage: We strongly recommend leaving Quantum Brite unopened in a cool, dark place until ready for use. For absolute best results, use within 3 months of receiving but, when stored in the original sealed container under recommended storage conditions, the shelf life can be 1 year. It is recommended to use the full contents in one use. If storing after opened, keep refrigerated and, if possible, purge with inert gas to preserve the delicate aromatic compounds. Use opened product within 1 month. Storing them improperly will result in aroma degradation. Similar to whole cones or pellets, the more you open and expose it to air and light, the more likely the flavor will degrade/lose potency.

    Handling: Quantum Brite requires no special handling. You do not need to warm Quantum Brite for it to be flowable. Pour directly into the brite tank when ready. Consistent with good hygiene and lab practices, maintain good ventilation, wear safety glasses or goggles, gloves, and an apron when handling.

    Usage: It’s always a good idea to shake well before use. Do not directly ingest without proper dilution. For mixing recommendations, consider 0.5 fl oz of Quantum Brite the flavor/aroma equivalent of 1 lb of T90. For further information, please contact us at hello@abstraxhops.com.

  • Disclaimers

  • What is Quantum?

    The Quantum Series is a range of hop-derived solutions processed using our groundbreaking, proprietary extraction techniques. We offer a liquid, water-soluble dry hop solution, as well as numerous alpha acid fractions. You can purchase products made from hops we've selected or we can process YOUR selected hops. Reach out to us at hello@abstraxhops.com to learn more about toll processing.

  • Why would I use Quantum over regular whole hops or pellets?

    Quantum solutions are more shelf stable, have higher amplitude, and do not absorb liquid volume like traditional hops while also minimizing transportation and storage costs.

  • How does Quantum compare to other hop extracts on the market?

    Quantum is only comparable to other advanced hop products in that they are both derived from hops. Outside of that, Quantum is higher amplitude, more efficient, and more cost-effective than anything else in the advanced products category.

  • What is the difference between Quantum and Omni Hop Profiles?

    Quantum Series products solutions are derived solely from hops while Omni Hop Profiles are both hop and botanical terpene-derived. Omni Hop Profiles are true living records of specific samples of hops that can be recreated forever thanks to our analytical mapping capabilities and botanical formulation expertise. Quantum solutions completely reflect the hops that go into the process in a way that no other hop extractions do.

  • Can I process my own hops into Quantum?

    Yes! For the first time ever, you as a brewer can have your hops processed into advanced products to add margin to your flagship beers. Flavor lock is no longer a challenge because it's YOUR HOPS. Send us an inquiry at hello@abstraxhops.com.
