Hop Pellets

Hop pellets look like rabbit food, small but nicely formed pellets of whole hops

They are packed in resealable bags so you can just use a few. They tend to break up to nothing in the boil so you get a really good extraction of flavour and bitterness but it creates it's own problems with filtering the hops out.
