    $11.50

    Czech Saaz Hop Pellets

    Saaz has a very distinctive flavour. When used in beer, the resultant aroma is very mild, earthy, herbal and spicy. Despite its popularity and noble pedigree, Saaz generally has a very low Alpha Acid level and is not very effective as a bittering hop. This hop is generally used for Bohemian style lagers and pilseners.
  2. Fuggle (UK) Hop Pellets

    Fuggle was first noticed growing "wild" in the hop garden of George Stace Moore's house at Horsmonden in Kent, England in 1861. In 1875 it was introduced by Richard Fuggle who lived in the village of Brenchley (not far from Horsmonden) and hence it was called Fuggle. The aroma is earthier and less sweet than Kent Goldings. Substitutes: Willamette.
  3. East Kent Goldings Hop Pellets (UK)

    Goldings are a group of traditional and very popular English aroma hops grown prior to 1790. They tend to have a smooth, sweet flavour.

  7. Styrian Golding Hop Pellets (UK)

    Styrian Golding is a hop variety with a confusing name because it doesn’t come from a Golding at all, but rather a Fuggle and has Fuggle-like characteristics. It was a major hops crop in the 1930s in its native Styria (in Austria on the Slovenia border), and has survived due to its tolerance to mildew which helped it to hold its own amid other varieties. It is now world-renowned and in high demand. It is a lovely aroma hop with high humulene and moderate myrcene and carophyllene. Even its farnesene, although low, makes its imprint on the aroma. The alpha acid content of hops will vary from batch to batch and may vary from the amount shown in the picture.
  8. Kazbek Hop Pellets (Czech)

    Named for one of the highest peaks in the Caucasus Mountains, Kazbek’s parents are Saaz and a wild landrace from the Caucasus. Similar to Saaz, but turned up to 11. Can show a dominant bright citrus note of lemon or grapefruit, but never obscures the quintessential mixture of floral and earthy spice of its Saaz parent.

  10. Pilgrim Hop Pellets (UK)
    $9.50

    Pilgrim Hop Pellets (UK)

    Pilgrim Hops is a dual use variety with a relatively high alpha acid content at 9.0%-13.0%. This variety comes with a high co-humulone content ranging from 36%-38% which some brewers attribute to a more harsh bitterness profile in beer. The oils are relatively balanced in Pilgrim Hops, and is compared to both Target and Challenger. The increase in aroma from Pilgrim compared to Target is associated with its selinene oil levels at 8.6%, which is sought after for its use in the perfume industry. This along with the other oil make-up provides an herbal hoppy essence about it. Distinct fruit and spice characteristics with pleasant lemon, grapefruit, pear and berry flavors
