What are Hop Pellets?

Hop pellets are small, compressed pellets made from whole hops and are used to add bitterness, flavour, and aroma to beer. They are created by grinding the hop cones into a fine powder in a hammer mill. The powder is then pressed and forced through an extruder, turning them into hard pellets.

Types of hop pellets

  • T90 Pellets contain over 90% of the non-resinous elements within the hop. Handy pellet form packaged in foil and nitro flushed.
  • T45 Pellets have 45% of the vegetative matter remaining and are milled at sub-zero temperatures, QC checked, foil packaged, and nitro flushed.
  • Enhanced Pellets are specially processed hops. This process will generally enhance flavours and aromas and can be more efficient when brewing. Common name brands are Lupulin Pellet, BBC, Lupomax, and Cryo Hops. 

We have sort-after hops from around the globe:

  • Australia
  • Czech
  • German
  • Japan
  • New Zealand
  • Slovenia
  • UK
  • USA

Advantages of using hop pellets for brewing beer

For homebrewing, hop pellets have many advantages over whole hops. Hop pellets are the perfect solution for adding bitterness, flavour and aroma to your beer without the hassle of dealing with whole hops. 

Here are some of the benefits of using hop pellets for home brewing.

  1. Easier to Measure: One of the significant benefits of using hop pellets is that they are much easier to measure than whole hops. Making them more reliable when you need to achieve a consistent bitterness or hop flavour in your beer.
  2. Last Longer: Hop pellets have a much longer shelf life than whole hops so you can store them for extended periods. This allows you to stock up on hop pellets for future brews and not worry about freshness.
  3. Increased Solubility: The pellets are much more soluble in wort than whole hops, meaning that more hop oils will be released into the wort, giving you more intense flavours and aromas in the final beer.
  4. More Consistent Results: Because hop pellets are much more consistent than whole hops, you can get the same results batch after batch, making your beers more predictable and consistent. 
  5. Greater Efficiency: Because hop pellets are more concentrated than whole hops, you can get more bitterness or flavour. This means you can use fewer hops and save money in the long run.
  6. More varieties: Because of their smaller size and longer shelf life, hops are easier to transport. This means we can get hop pellets from all over the plant, giving us more options for flavours and aromas. 

Overall, hop pellets offer many advantages over whole hops for homebrewers. For these reasons, hop pellets are an excellent choice for getting the most out of your brewing experience.
