Welcome to the world of AU Galaxy® Hop Pellets 1 Lb, a unique breed of hops that hails from Australia and is a descendant of the German variety Perle. What sets these hop pellets apart is their high percentage of essential oils - the highest in the industry, in fact. 

 When you open a bag of AU Galaxy® Hop Pellets, you'll be greeted by an aroma profile that is a delightful blend of citrus, stone fruit, and tropical notes. This unique combination of scents can add a distinctive flavor to your brews, making them stand out from the crowd. 

 At LD Carlson, we ensure the freshness and quality of these hop pellets by nitrogen flushing and cold storing them. This process helps to preserve their aroma and flavor, ensuring that you get the best possible product for your brewing needs. 

 The AU Galaxy® Hop Pellets come with an alpha acid range of 18.5% and a beta acid range of 7.7%. They also have a total oil range of 2.8ml/100g. The breakdown of the total oil is as follows: 

- B-Pinene: 0.3-0.6%

- Myrcene: 32-56%

- Linalool: 0.5-1.0%

- Caryophyllene: 7-14.7%

- Farnesene: 2.8-5.1%

- Humulene: 0.8-2.2%

- Geraniol: 0.1-0.3%

- Other: 7.4-50.6%

One Step Cleaner

If you are purchasing AU Galaxy Hop Pellets, you're getting ready to make beer and need to wash your equipment.

If you need hops, you probably also need grains or malt extracts.

The pot pictured is an 8 gallon pot that is perfect for a beer kit or a standard 5 gallon batch. 

wart-chiller.pngWort Chillers and Thermometers

Wort Chillers and Thermometers are long term investments. It is important to chill your wort quickly. The quicker you chill it the stronger the cold break will be. You also need a good thermometer because high powered boiling changes more rapid temperature fluctuations. 

SiphonsSiphons

Auto-siphons are a great luxury item to have in your brew equipment. Once you have one you will never go without one again. Don't forget to use a heavy duty sanitizer to clean it since you don't want to replace it as often as hoses. A good sanitizer for that job is Five Star San. 

FermenterFermenters

 If you are using AU Galaxy Hop Pellets, you are getting ready to ferment some beer. Here's a link to our fermenter equipment.

 Many people reuse their hoses for far too long. Replacing your hoses often or even using as single use items is highly recommended with beer making.

Pouring your wort into a carboy can be tricky. Use a big funnel made just for the job. They even have different mesh screens to remove particles.

AirlocksAirlocks

All that healthy yeast is going to make a lot of gas and you'll be needing an airlock to let it out, and not let anything in. It is recommended to replace airlocks often. Because they never physically touch the beer, the sanitation risk is too often overlooked. Bacteria can spread without physical contact in a closed environment and plastic stubbornly harbors bacteria. 

yeast-starter.pngYeast Starters

Making a yeast starter is a great way to avoid stuck fermentation and also get high yeast counts that allow the final cells to clean up after themselves, reducing off flavors and aromas. Higher populations means less yeast stress and less risk of off-flavors.  They help make better beer and can be used with AU Galaxy Hop Pellets. Use the right equipment to make the job easy.
