Super Sauvin is an exciting new blend born out of a collab with our friends and thiol-related research collaborators at Phantasm. We've teamed up with the crew at Phantasm to create a thiol enriched blend of thiol precursor laden Phantasm, combined with Nelson Sauvin that has high concentrations of cysteine bound 3SH precursors, bound 3S4MP precursors and terpene alcohols.
Super Sauvin is intended for whirlpool use and/or active fermentation dry hopping with thiolized yeast strains. This blend looks like, and should be used in the same manner as, a normal T-90 hop pellet. We recommend whirlpool dosage rates from 4 g/L upwards depending on style and yeast strain. Phantasm is incorporated into the hops prior to pelleting and we’ve created a homogenous blended pellet. Super Sauvin is intended to provide a wider array of thiol precursor compounds than is available from Phantasm alone. While we aren’t yet able to test for the full array of these thiol precursors, we know that bound 3S4MP and 3SO are present in addition to the bound 3SH from Phantasm.
Super Sauvin is a further manifestation of our boundless love of the unique flavours of New Zealand and is a fun project with our close friends and thiol-related research collaborators at Phantasm. We hope you enjoy the fruits of our combined labour. As always, grown with love, full of terps and thiols!
