hop pellets Type 90 (T90) (bitter)

With the bittering hops, the basic bitterness of the beer is set with the 1st hop addition. The bittering hops do not contribute to the aroma of the beer.

The raw hops are sieved and cleaned of coarse impurities, then dried out to a humidity of approx. 8 – 10%. Then the raw hops are ground down into powder. The powder is pressed through a matrix – and the pellets are formed. In the next production step they are packed in aluminium compound foil with the addition of a CO2/N2-gas mixture. This is to make sure that no quality-damaging oxygen is in the foil. From 100 kg of raw hops approx. 90 kg pellets are made, hence the term „P90“.
