Introducing our Columbus Hop Pellets 1 lb., a high alpha variety that hails from the fertile hop fields of the Pacific Northwest. These hops are a powerhouse, boasting an alpha acid specification of 14 - 16%, making them an excellent choice for bittering your ales, and particularly your IPAs.

But don't let the high alpha acid content fool you. Columbus Hop Pellets are not just about the bittering. They also have a beta acid specification of 4.5 - 5.5%, and a cohumulone content of 30 - 35% of alpha acids. This unique combination gives them a clean bittering quality that's balanced by a pungent aroma, creating a complex flavor profile that's sure to elevate your beer.

The magic of Columbus Hop Pellets lies in their versatility. Add them early in the boil, and they'll impart a robust bitterness that's perfect for those hop-forward brews. But if you're after a more aromatic experience, try adding them later in the boil. This will allow the hops to release their dramatic aroma, adding a whole new dimension to your beer.

And if you're feeling adventurous, why not try dry hopping with Columbus Hop Pellets? This method will bring out their full aromatic potential, resulting in a beer that's not just flavorful, but also wonderfully fragrant.

So, whether you're a seasoned brewer or just starting out, Columbus Hop Pellets are a must-have in your brewing arsenal. They're not just a hop, they're a ticket to a world of flavor and aroma possibilities. So go ahead, add a pack to your cart, and let your beer-making journey begin!

One Step Cleaner

If you are purchasing Columbus 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.

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




In the past, Ireland did not cultivate hops and instead relied on imports from England. In 1752, Dublin alone imported over 500 tons of hops from England.
