Immerse yourself in the world of home brewing with our Citra Hop Pellets 1 lb., a unique blend of Hallertauer Mittlefruh, US Tettnang, Brewer's Gold, and East Kent Golding. Born from the innovative minds at the Hop Breeding Company and released to the public in 2007, these hops have quickly become a favorite among American IPA enthusiasts.

Our Citra Hop Pellets are sourced directly from the fertile hop fields where they are meticulously grown and harvested. With typical alpha acids ranging from 11% to 13%, and beta acids between 3.5% and 4.5%, these hops are primed to deliver a robust and balanced flavor to your home-brewed beer. The co-humulone content sits comfortably between 22 and 24%, adding to the overall harmony of the brew.

The flavor profile of these hops is a delightful symphony of citrus and tropical tones. Imagine the tangy zest of grapefruit, the sweet juiciness of melon, the refreshing kick of lime, the tartness of gooseberry, the exotic allure of passion fruit, and the distinct taste of lychee all dancing on your palate. This is what you can expect when you incorporate our Citra Hop Pellets into your brewing process.

The magic of these hops lies in their versatility. Add them at different stages of the boil to explore a spectrum of flavors. Early additions will impart a more bitter, grapefruit-like taste, while later additions will bring out the tropical fruit notes. If you're feeling adventurous, try dry hopping with Citra to really highlight the aromatic citrus and tropical fruit characteristics.

So, whether you're crafting a single hop IPA or experimenting with a new recipe, our Citra Hop Pellets are your ticket to a flavorful, aromatic, and satisfying brew. Dive into the exciting world of home brewing and let your creativity flow with our Citra Hop Pellets. Your taste buds will thank you!

One Step Cleaner

If you are purchasing Citra 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 Citra 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 Citra Hop Pellets. Use the right equipment to make the job easy.

 DID YOU KNOW

There were numerous grievances in England regarding the poor quality of imported hops, as the sacks often contained additional substances like stalks, sand, or straw to artificially increase their weight.
