Immerse yourself in the world of beer crafting with our Crystal Hop Pellets 1lb., a triploid variety that traces its roots back to German Hallertau, Cascade, Brewer's Gold, and Early Green. These hops are a testament to the rich heritage of beer making, offering a low Alpha Acid range of 3-5% and Beta Acids between 4.5-6.7%.

As you dive into the brewing process, you'll find that these hops are not just about numbers. They're about the experience, the aroma, and the flavor. With strong notes of pine and a delightful floral bouquet, Crystal Hop Pellets are a sensory delight. They're not just hops; they're a journey into the heart of beer crafting.

Now, let's talk about the magic of the boil. Adding these hop pellets at different stages of the boil can dramatically alter the flavor profile of your beer. Early additions to the boil will emphasize their bittering characteristics, while later additions will highlight their unique aroma and flavor. It's like being a conductor, orchestrating the symphony of flavors in your beer.

And don't forget about dry hopping. With their robust pine notes and floral bouquet, Crystal Hop Pellets are a fantastic choice for this technique. Dry hopping will amplify the aromatic profile of your beer, making every sip a fragrant reminder of your brewing prowess.

So, whether you're a seasoned brewer or just starting your journey, our Crystal Hop Pellets offer you the chance to explore, experiment, and elevate your beer. With every brew, you're not just making beer; you're creating a masterpiece. Enjoy the journey!

Typical Alpha Acids 3-5%
Beta Acids - 4.5-6.7%
Cohumulone - 20-26%

If you are purchasing Crystal 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 Crystal 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 Crystal Hop Pellets. Use the right equipment to make the job easy. Flask, Foam Stopper, and Airlock.
