Hallertau Mittelfruh T90 Hop Pellets (DEU)

Hallertau Mittelfruh Hop PelletsHallertau Mittelfruh is a delicate aroma hop used mainly over the years in Lager type beers. However, it also succeeded in producing some of the lighter English cask-conditioned ales. This classic German aroma hop is often linked to Bavarian-style lager beers, known for an intense, pleasantly-harmonic bitterness. At one time, this landrace variety was the primary Hallertau hop, acclaimed for its highly praised aroma profile.

Grown in Hallertau, Spalt, Hersbruck, Tettnang and Baden-Bitburg-Rheinpfalz areas of Germany. “Hallertauer Mittelfrüher “ is the traditional Hallertau variety although its acreage is gradually decreasing due to disease.

SUBSTITUTES FOR Hallertau Mittelfruh

Manufacturers produce T-90 hop pellets by hammer-milling kiln-dried, whole leaf hop cones into a uniform powder and then pressing them through a pellet die. Pellet compression fine-tunes to achieve a consistent density for repeatable brewing, batch after batch, addressing variations in oil and vegetative content in leaf hops.

The production processes continually monitor temperature and cool the pellet die to protect and preserve hop resins. Hop pellets retain all natural lupulin and cone material, serving as a complete replacement for whole hops. They have a longer shelf life, requiring less storage space, and generally being easier to handle.


Weighing of hops occurs only upon receiving an order. They do not sit on shelves; instead, they are extracted from a bulk vacuum-sealed bag in cold storage. We package our hop pellets in UV-protected polyethylene bags and vacuum seal them for freshness and quality.

The vacuum seal may degrade, particularly if hop dust accumulates near the heat-sealed section of the bag. If you receive the hops and it appears that the vacuum is breaking down, the hops will still be perfectly safe to use with no degradation of flavour. If you do not intend to use then in a few days of receiving, we suggest that you store them in a fridge or freezer. Hop pellets stored near-freezing, preferably between -1°C and 5°C. Under these conditions, T-90 hop pellets will remain stable in closed containers for three (3) years.
