Introducing our El Dorado Hop Pellets, a 1 lb bag of pure brewing magic hailing from the fertile hop fields of the Pacific Northwest. These hop pellets are a brewer's dream, boasting an alpha acid content of 13 - 17% and a beta acid content of 7 - 8%. With such a high alpha acid content, these hops are your secret weapon for adding a robust bittering element to your beer.

But it's not just about the bitterness. The El Dorado Hop Pellets are a flavor powerhouse, too. Imagine the sweet, candy-like aroma wafting from your brew pot, hinting at the unique taste profile these hops bring to the table. You'll find notes of cherry and mango dancing on your palate, adding a tropical twist to your brew. These flavors are versatile, making them a fantastic addition to a wide range of beer styles, from the hop-forward IPA to the more subtle pale ales and even wheat beers.

Now, let's talk about the brewing process. When you add these hop pellets at different stages of the boil, you're in control of the flavor profile of your beer. Early additions will emphasize the bitterness, while later additions will bring out more of the fruity, tropical flavors. It's all about finding the balance that suits your taste buds.

So, whether you're a seasoned brewer or just starting out, our El Dorado Hop Pellets are a must-have in your brewing arsenal. They offer a unique blend of bitterness and flavor that can take your beer from good to great. So go ahead, add a bag to your cart and let your beer-making adventure begin!

One Step Cleaner

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