BACKGROUND: It is well known that duration of pre-drying storage impacts on hop quality. However, little knowledge existsregarding its actual effects on valuable hop components. To investigate these effects, fresh hop cones were stored for 5 or24 h and dried for 210 min at 65 °C thereafter. Furthermore, to understand the effect of freezing hop cones on the essentialoil content, both fresh and stored samples were frozen before and after drying.
RESULTS: The results from gas chromatography analysis show an increase in linalool, -caryophyllene, humulene, geraniol con-tent and decrease in myrcene content dependent on the period of storage. Total colour difference ∆E values of 4.61 and 5.27were obtained for fresh and stored hops respectively, indicating discoloration of hops during storage. Modelling of moisturecurves revealed the Wang and Singh model to be suitable, with R2adjvalues of 0.978 and 0.989 and root-mean-square errorvalues of 0.037 and 0.019 for fresh and stored hops respectively.
CONCLUSION: The results from this study provide an in-depth understanding on the changes occurring within the hop conesboth during storage and drying and will further help hop processors optimize their storage times.
