T90 HOP PELLETS

Producers manufacture T-90 hop pellets by hammer-milling kiln-dried, whole leaf hop cones into a uniform powder and subsequently pressing them through a pellet die. Leaf hops vary in oil and vegetative content, so brewers fine-tune pellet compression to achieve a consistent density for repeatable brewing, batch after batch.

The production processes are designed to safeguard and preserve hop resins by consistently monitoring temperature and cooling the pellet die. Hop pellets preserve all of their natural lupulin and cone material, making them a suitable full replacement for whole hops. They offer a longer shelf life, require less storage space, and are generally easier to handle.

STORAGE

We weigh all hops only when there is an order for them – none have been sitting of shelves, they are taken out from a bulk vacuum sealed bag in cold storage at the time we complete your order. Our hop pellets are packaged inside UV protected polyethylene bags and vacuum sealed.

Sometimes the vacuum seal can degrade – especially if hop dust settles alongside where the bag is heat sealed. 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.
