The use of hop also helps to coagulate the proteins in suspension making the beer more clear (clarification), furthermore it helps to mantain krausen. Hop has different qualities and it also exists in different sizes: Cones, non pressed hop flowers; Plugs, large tablets of pressed hop flowers; Pellets, small cylinders of crushed and pressed hop.
