Estudo de pesquisadores do Departamentos de Ciência e Tecnologia de Alimentos (Food Science and Technology Department) da Universidade Estadual de Oregon (Corvallis, EUA) mostra que o uso de lúpulo por dry-hopping pode ser mais eficiente com multi adições. Os autores apresentam evidências que sustentam a hipótese que dry-hopping em doses mais baixas e com múltiplas adições podem oferecer maior potencial de aroma de lúpulo na cerveja do que adições únicas a taxas mais altas.

ABSTRACT. Multi-stage dry-hopping is a technique that is widely used by brewers to achieve intense hop aroma in beer. However, a thorough analysis of its efficacy does not exist in the published literature. The goal of this study was to compare the properties of beers produced by single or twostage dry-hopping at the same cumulative rate. On the pilot scale (80–100 L), an un-hopped base beer was subjected alternately to single- or two-stage dry-hop additions at 386, 772, and 1544 g/ hL using Centennial hops. Separately commercial beers (350 hL batch size) were dry-hopped at 733 g/hL in single or two-stage additions using a combination of Amarillo, Simcoe, Cascade, Citra, and CTZ pellets. Pilot scale dry-hopped beers showed increases in residual extract, pH, bitterness units, humulinones, and total polyphenols, accompanied by a decrease in iso-a-acids with increasing hop dose. Changes in bitterness units, humulinones, and iso-a-acids all appeared to be more pronounced in the two-stage dry-hopped beers. In contrast, commercial beers were nearly identical in terms of chemical composition. Significant increases in six aroma attributes scaled by a trained panel were observed as a result of two-stage dry-hopping in the pilot scale treatments. Slight increases in aroma potential were observed for the commercial beer made with two-stage additions, although these differences were not statistically significant. These results illustrate the impact multi-stage dry-hop additions have on beer aroma, and provide direction to brewers to consider whether multi-stage dry-hopping may yield desirable results while potentially using less hop material.
