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.
T-45 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 T-45 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 T-45 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.
