Dual purpose hop. Because of its long storage life, one of the more popular hops used in home brewing. Can be used both for bittering and aroma, where it gives a slightly spicy touch. Popular due to the combination of considerable alpha acid content with good aroma. Alpha acid content: 6-8.5%. 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.
