Comet Enriched Hop Pellets
USA. Comet is a cross of English hops with a wild American variety and was first released in 1974. Commercial production ceased in the 1980s as it was phased out in favor of new super-high alpha varieties. Recently, Comet has enjoyed a comeback thanks to its unique sensory profile.
Enriched Hop Pellets can be used anywhere T-90 pellets would be incorporated, but are ideal for aroma, whirlpool and dry hop additions. Due to the higher concentration of acids and oils in enriched pellets, hop charges in many recipes can be reduced by approximately 50% vs. T-90 pellets or whole hop cones. We recommend conducting trials to determine the optimal usage rate for your formulation.
First released as a high-alpha bittering hop, Comet is reborn as an aroma variety in IPAs, wild ales, farmhouse beers, and other cutting-edge craft styles.
