Immerse yourself in the world of home brewing with our Chinook Hop Pellets 1 oz., a German variety that's been making waves in the American-style Ale scene. These hops are the result of a unique cross-breeding between Petham Golding and the USDA 63012 Male, released in May 1985.

Chinook Hops are primarily known for their bittering properties, but don't be fooled - they also possess a delightful aroma that can elevate your brew. Imagine a medium-intensity scent that's a blend of piney, spicy, and subtle grapefruit hints. Intriguing, isn't it?

With an alpha acid specification of 12.0 - 14.0%, these hops are sure to add a robust bitterness to your brew. But that's not all. The beta acid content of 3.0 - 4.0% and cohumulone of 29 - 34% contribute to a herbal smoky character when used for aroma or dry hopping.

Now, let's talk about the flavor profile. The Chinook Hop Pellets are known for their smoky, herbal notes. But the real magic happens when you add them at various stages of the boil. Early additions to the boil will impart a strong, bitter flavor, while later additions will bring out the aromatic qualities. It's all about timing and your personal taste preference.

These hops are a fantastic choice for American-Style Pale Ales, especially those brewed to higher gravities. But don't stop there. Feel free to experiment with IPAs, Stouts, Porters, and even Barley Wines. The lupulin in these hops is abundant and of a vibrant yellow-orange color, adding another layer of complexity to your brew.

So, are you ready to take your home brewing journey to the next level? With Chinook Hop Pellets, you're not just brewing beer, you're crafting an experience. Enjoy the process, savor the flavors, and most importantly, have fun with it. After all, the best beer is the one you brew yourself.

One Step Cleaner

If you are purchasing Chinook 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.

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. 


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. 


 If you are using Chinook 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.


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




The hop industry has borrowed numerous words from Dutch, and hops were cultivated as far north as Aberdeen for the sake of convenient infrastructure near breweries.
