Moutere T90 Hop Pellets (NZ)

harlequin Hop PelletsMoutere™ is a powerhouse hop variety, boasting high alpha acid content along with a substantial oil content, resulting in a bold yet balanced bitterness. Its lower cohumulone levels contribute to a smooth and well-structured bitterness. Sensory evaluations highlight flavors and aromas reminiscent of grapefruit, subtle tropical fruit, and passionfruit in the finished beer.


Alpha Acid: 16-20%
Hop Type: Aroma & Bittering
Beta Acid: 8-10%
Total Oil: 1.5-2% ml/100g


Moutere™ stands as an exceptional New Zealand bittering hop, offering a velvety hop bitterness that delicately envelops the palate. Whether used as a late addition, its abundant oil content and resinous qualities shine brightest in traditional beer styles like Lagers, Pale Ales, and robust IPAs or NEIPAs.


Moutere™ bursts with tropical fruit aromas, including resinous notes, alongside distinct hints of passionfruit and grapefruit. Additionally, some brewers detect aromas reminiscent of sweet hay, making it an excellent complement for pilsners and saisons.


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.
