This Japanese variety was developed by Sapporo Breweries, originally for use in their own beers, but this has now been replaced by other, newer varieties. Dual purpose hop. Alpha acid content: 13-16%.Â The exact alpha acid content is indicated on every package.
Hop pellets are destalked ground hops pressed into little pellets. Use about 10 % less than when using hop cones with a similar alpha level. Hop pellets can be preserved longer and are usually available for a longer period of time during the course of the season.
All our hops are packed in special vacuum packages for optimal storage life and placed in a cold storage room at 5 °C. The availability and alpha acid content strongly depend on the harvest.
