FEEDBACK REQUEST: Expanded product options


#1

The market is evolving. Extracts, cryos, powders and other hop derivatives are now becoming industry standards. You asked LEx to support these products, and we’re ready to make that happen. First, however, we need your feedback to ensure that our listing page updates are comprehensive and correct.

  1. We are proposing the following changes to hop product “types” at listing. Additions are in bold type.
  • Leaf/Cone
  • Pellets
    • T45 Pellet
    • T90 Pellet
    • BBC Pure Hop Pellet
  • CO2 Extract
  • Powder/T35
  1. We will also be introducing “listing attributes” to help describe unique characteristics of extracts and other products:
  • Organic
  • Light Stabilized
  • Cold Enrichment
  • Isomerized
  • Pourable
  • IKE
  • PIKE
  • 30%
  • Rho 10%
  • Rho 35%
  • RHO-S 30%
  • Tetra
  • Hexa
  • Hexa-Tetra
  • Alpha Acid Standardized
  1. Finally we will have to add a few new packaging types to support CO2 Extracts:
  • 0.5 kg Can
  • 1 kg Can
  • 2 kg Can
  • 3 kg Can
  • 4 kg can
  • 50 kg drum
  • 200 kg drum

We’ve included some common examples of new product listings at the bottom of this post.

NOW…WE NEED YOUR HELP.

  • What did we get wrong? Do you see any incorrect or misleading information in the lists above?
  • What did we miss? Are there additional hop products, attributes, and/or packaging types that should be included on the listing page?
  • Anything else we should know on this topic?

Please reply below - this is a community issue that requires a community solution.

Thanks,

Hey Jesse - If possible; could the new WetHOPs product be included as one of the “product types”? We want to make sure the Brewing Community knows that this recently patented product is available. As we discussed, we have three sizes available - 300g cans, 1kg foils and 3.5kg foils. This offering (type) does not fall into the Extract or Powder category.

Seems like a reasonable solution.


#5

One question I find myself repeatedly asking folks is at what temperature are you storing the hops you have for sale. Is it feasible to have a drop down for sellers to select the temperature?


#6

Can we have expanded options for hop storage? Cooler, Deep Freeze, etc?


#7

Agreed, we store our hops frozen, would like to see more options in storage type

In addition to the other extract attributes already listed, clearly “grams of alpha” per can is critical. It should also include crop year of source hops and % AA of the can contents, or at least total weight of the extract, and not just can size. Not all 1000 gma cans have the same AA content and therefore different oil concentrations. Nice evolution of the LE.
