When it comes to hops, there’s no substitute for quality. For many craft brewers, who are typically using smaller lots of a wide range of hop varieties, understanding the pelletization process and importance of pellet density can help ensure optimal results.
Peter Hoey, West Coast sales director for BSG CraftBrewing, created this presentation on hop pellet quality for the craft brewer. It includes a walkthrough of hop processing as well as best practices and tips for shipping and storage of hop pellets. Whether you are a brewpub, nano, or regional brewery, protecting your investment in the aromatic oils and acids of hops will pay dividends in the glass!
