Pellet Hops for Beer Brewing | Pellet Hops at Moonshiners.club

Pellet Hops

We offer an incredible selection of brewing hops for making beer, all packaged in oxygen-barrier bags to help keep them as fresh as possible. We sell both pellet hops and whole leaf hops. Pellet hops are milled during processing which breaks up the lupulin glands in the hops. Since pellet hops are condensed into a smaller form with a very little surface area they can be stored for longer. While we recommend pellet hops for most brewing, there are applications where Whole leaf hops are the better option. Whole leaf hops are perfect for use in a hop back and some brewers prefer them in the boil when using a kettle screen. For best results, we recommend that you store your hops in the freezer until they’re ready to be used.

  • Ahtanum Pellet Hops

    Ahtanum Pellet Hops

    $2.29$99.99

    Used for both bittering and aroma, this versatile hop was developed in the American Pacific Northwest. Since Ahtanum can be used both for moderate bittering and a citrusy, floral aroma, it works well in an array of beer styles. It is most commonly used in Pale Ales for that perfect blend of fresh taste and mild bitterness.

    With an alpha acid composition of just 5.7% to 6.3%, Ahtanum hops can also be utilized in Lagers, IPAs, and APAs. Although this hop is easily harvested and generally available, you could also substitute Amarillo or Cascade hops in its place.

    Touches of earthy and piney notes make Ahtanum pellet hops a versatile brewing choice, as well. See the wide range of uses in commercial brews like Sierra Nevada?s Celebration Ale and Dogfish Head?s Blood Orange Hefeweizen.

    All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper.

  • Apollo Pellet Hops

    Apollo Pellet Hops

    $1.99$96.99

    This American hop was bred for a high acid content and was originally cultivated in 2000. The high alpha acid range of about 15% to 19% makes Apollo hops a perfect bittering agent in any style of beer, especially IPAs. It also gives off both earthy and citrusy aromas during the boil that add a wonderful touch of flavor to your bitter brew. Because of their strength the use of Apollo pellet hops allows you to add less bittering hops overall. That can be an advantage for certain brewing systems where you want to reduce vegetal matter in the boil.

  • AU Helga Pellet Hops

    AU Helga Pellet Hops

    $2.29$101.29

    This Australian bred hop has a decidedly German character from parent varietal Hallertauer Mittelfruh. Helga was a product of open pollination of a Hallertauer Mittelfruh female, and was formerly known as Southern Hallertau. After its commercial release in the late 1980s, Helga began gaining popularity among craft brewers in the late 1990s for its versatility as a dual purpose ingredient.

    With an alpha acid range of just 5% to 7.5%, the bittering quality is not strong, but apparent in beers like Belgian and American Ales. A delicate floral, herbaceous aroma carries a bit of spice for a depth that works well in darker Lagers. If you have difficulty finding Helga hops for your brew, consider substituting with parent Hallertauer Mittelfruh. Get a taste of Helga in craft brews like Eagle Rock Brewery?s Bitter Helga ESB.

    British Fuggles Pellet Ho..

    $1.59$97.99

    This popular hop runs the gamut in global varietals from U.S. to U.K. and even more variations therein. Though the region hops are grown in will undoubtedly affect the characteristics that come through in your brew, Fuggle hops tend to assume the same general properties across the board. Introduced way back in 1875, Fuggles has been one of the most popular British hops used since! Now available and grown across the globe, Fuggles are used to complement a variety of beer styles to suit their region. They work well for both bittering and aromatics in Belgian and English Ales as well as Red Ales and IPAs.

    Fuggle hops will normally have a lower alpha acid level, generally between 3% and 7%. The aromatics tend to be earthy, with hints of grass, wood and mint. The best possible substitutions for any type of Fuggle hops include UK varietals Willamette and Goldings. Try to grab a bottle of Free State Brewing Co.?s Ad Astra Ale to give these hops a taste.

  • British Kent Goldings Pel..

    British Kent Goldings Pel..

    $2.99$119.99

    Though these hops are known under several names including BKG, Kent Goldings, and East Kent Goldings, they serve one purpose- to add a distinct aroma to your brew. British Kent Goldings originated in the Kent region of England way back in the 1790s. Used mostly in English style Ales and Pale Ales, British Kent Goldings add their soft floral scent of lavender and honey with overtones of fresh lemon and thyme for a little spice.

    With an alpha acid range of about 4% to 6%, the aroma is the strong point of this distinguished hop. If you think hops have gone over the top or you need a break from the C hops give Kent Goldings a chance. This hop is famous for blending with the malt in a harmonious, synergistic way. These hops are also among the easiest to substitute by using other varieties of the Golding family like US Golding, or try British Progress hops.

    This American Pacific Northwest grown hop is a newer variety that is widely used for both bittering and aromatic characteristics. Its alpha acid content of about 12% to 14% makes Calypso an excellent bittering hop.

    Calypso has all kinds of flavor descriptions including the most common of apple, pear, and citrus. We also seen melon and tropical fruits which would make sense based on its name. We also read about people getting pepper, cherry blossom, and mint. That is a wide range of flavor! We see it used a lot in IPA?s and Pale Ales but of course you could use it in darker beers as well even Stouts. Since Calypso whole hops and pellets are readily available, it is unlikely that you would need to find a substitute.

    This popular hop among craft brewers was developed in Washington State by the USDA in 1985. A cross between Petham Golding hops and a high alpha male, this dual purpose hop delivers both bittering power and a rich aroma. Intensely spicy and piney flavors influence the aroma added to any brew with a hint of bright grapefruit. This full flavor provides the perfect balance to a high alpha acid content between 12% and 14%.

    Earthy aroma and heavy bittering characteristics make Chinook hops perfect for styles like IPAs, APAs, and seasonal brews like Winter Ales and Stouts. As Chinook grows in popularity, it is easy to find in both whole and pellet form for your brew, though for a less intense bitterness you can certainly substitute with Northern Brewer, Columbus, or Nugget hops. Give it a try first by picking up a commercial brew like Karl Strauss Brewing Co.?s Tower 10 IPA.

    Cluster Pellet Hops

    $1.99$89.99

    Thought to be among the oldest hops in the U.S., Cluster hops also grow similarly in Australia and other regions. Its origins are vague, but Cluster was first found in Oregon, though it may have originated in Canada and has been readily available since the 1960s. With a robust aroma and substantial bittering quality, this hop is utilized as a dual purpose brewing ingredient. A very fruity aroma with fresh, hoppy notes lends itself well to multiple beer styles, but is most commonly used in darker brews like Lagers, Stouts, and Porters.

    An alpha acid range of 5.5% to 8.5% is what really makes the Cluster hop perfect in those deep brews. Varietals like Galena hops can be substituted for Cluster to provide a similar character. Taste the difference in commercial brews like Mendocino Brewing Co.?s Blue Heron Pale Ale.
