Enriched Hop Pellets
Enriched hop pellets are also known as “concentrated hop pellets” or “lupulin-enriched hop pellets.” They contain a higher concentration of the aromatic oils and bittering resins from whole hop cones, while the proportion of polyphenols and other vegetative matter is reduced.
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. In the brewhouse and cellar this means reduced wort loss, higher sellable beer yields, and easier cleanup.
We recommend conducting trials to determine the optimal enriched hop pellet usage rate for your formulation.
