Introducing our Cascade Hop Pellets 1 lb., a beer maker's secret weapon for crafting aromatic and flavorful brews. These hop pellets are sourced directly from the fertile soils of the USDA-ARS breeding program, a testament to their premium quality and authenticity.

Born from the open pollination of a Fuggle seedling, Cascade Hop Pellets are a unique blend of Fuggle and Serebrianka. They are mid-season fruiting hops, bred in 1956 and released to the public in 1972.

With an alpha acid specification of 4.5 - 7.0% and a beta acid specification of 4.5 - 7.0%, these hops are not just about their aromatic properties. They also serve as a bittering hop, adding a distinct depth to your brew. Cohumulone levels range from 33 - 40%, contributing to the overall bitterness and stability of your beer.

The flavor profile of Cascade Hop Pellets is a delightful mix of citrusy and flowery notes. Imagine the high overtones of grapefruit and orange, dancing on your palate with every sip. These hops are primarily used in Pale Ales, Porters, and some Barley Wines. But don't let that limit your creativity! They can also be used in Witbiers for a more orange-type citrus aroma.

The magic of these hops lies in when you add them to your boil. Add them early, and they'll impart a robust bitterness to your brew. Add them later, and they'll infuse your beer with their signature citrusy aroma. It's all about timing and your personal taste.

So, whether you're a seasoned brewer or just starting your beer-making journey, our Cascade Hop Pellets are a must-have in your brewing arsenal. They're not just hops; they're a ticket to a world of flavor and aroma that will make your brews stand out. So go ahead, add them to your cart, and let's start brewing some magic!

One Step Cleaner

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

grainsGrains and Malt Extracts

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 Cascade 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. 

4708-anti-splash-funnel-95307-32839.jpgFunnels

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 Cascade Hop Pellets. Use the right equipment to make the job easy. Flask, Foam Stopper, and Airlock.

 DID YOU KNOW

In 1471, the city of Norwich in England prohibited the use of hops in the production of ale. At that time, "beer" referred to fermented malt beverages that were flavored with hops, although today the terms are often used interchangeably.
