Immerse yourself in the world of beer crafting with our Centennial Hop Pellets 1 oz., a product that hails from the rich soils of Germany. These hop pellets are a unique blend, primarily derived from Brewer's Gold, with a dash of Fuggle, East Kent Golding, and other varieties. They are moderately resistant to downy mildew and verticillium wilt, ensuring a robust and healthy brewing experience.
Our Centennial Hop Pellets boast an alpha acid specification of 9.5% to 11.5%, and a beta acid specification of 3.5% to 4.5%. The Co-Humulone content ranges from 28% to 30%. These specifications make them a true dual-purpose hop, ideal for both bittering and aroma.
The flavor profile of these hop pellets is nothing short of remarkable. They offer an intense floral note, coupled with a citrusy punch that reminds you of fresh lemons. This balanced blend of flavors makes them a favorite among American-style ales and IPAs. They are particularly popular in the craft beer community, earning them the nickname "Super Cascade."
The magic of these hop pellets lies in their versatility. Add them at different stages of the boil to manipulate the flavors they impart. Early addition results in a robust bitterness, while late addition will infuse your brew with their signature floral and citrus aroma.
So, whether you're a seasoned brewer or just starting your beer-making journey, our Centennial Hop Pellets are a must-have in your brewing arsenal. They offer a fun and flavorful way to experiment with your brews, without compromising on the quality and authenticity of your beer. So go ahead, add a pack to your cart, and let your beer crafting adventure begin!

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.
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.

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.
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.
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 Centennial Hop Pellets. Use the right equipment to make the job easy.
