Phoenix T90 Hop Pellets (UK)

Phoenix Hop PelletsPhoenix is an unusual hop with high oil content making it a good alternative to a dual-purpose or bittering hop. Developed at the same time as Admiral, Phoenix is a seedling of Yeoman, developed at Horticulture Research International (HRI), Wye College in the UK and released for general cultivation in 1996. It is still a little-known hop as it was originally grown and sold to just one brewer.

Phoenix has excellent fresh flavour characteristics including pine, floral, chocolate, molasses and slightly spicy notes. Brewers have reported interesting findings when using it as a late hop addition. With substitutions such as Challenger, East Kent Golding and Northdown, Phoenix performs well as a replacement for high alpha or dual-purpose hops. Late hop additions for aroma have produced good results.

Phoenix produces good-sized cones well down the bine. A versatile and robust variety, with a high tolerance to wilt, resistance to strains of powdery mildew, but susceptible to downy mildew. It has excellent storage stability.

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.
