Hop Pellets

Hop pellets are leaf hops that have been ground through a hammer mill and pressed through a pellet die. No additives are needed; natural resins found in the hop cones hold the shape. Hops impart the necessary bitterness required to balance the sweetness of the malt. They provide the spice flavor in beer and the aroma which prepares the taste buds via the nose. While color is the most obvious beer style characteristic; bitterness, flavor and aroma, provide the primary distinction between beer styles. There is a large selection of hop varieties to choose from. Most are available in whole, pellet and leaf forms. Pellets are preferred by most brewers because they are the most predictable.
