Hops- Leaf,Pellet and Oil For Homebrew Beer!

Lets go to the Hop!

If you just want hops for a hop pillow or a simple beer then just use Goldings!!

We have lots of hops in stock. Hops add bitterness and flavour to your homebrew beer

If you want to add some to a beer kit to increase the bitterness and flavour

We'd suggest you add about 25g or a quarter of a packet. Goldings are good for this use.

Just make a hop tea with about a pint of boiling water and add the water only. Throw the hops away, add to the bucket about two days before bottling

 

For making boiled and mashed beers follow your instructions and recipes! It's usually about 100g hops for 40 pints of beer but it can vary a lot!

Hops -
Gold  Foil Packed 4oz-113 gram
 Silver Foil Packs         100g
As a general guide the more expensive hops are in the silver foil and you get a bit less!

All our hops are vacuum  packed in foil at the hopyard . This keeps them in the best condition possible. They still retain the full aroma and taste they had when packed. These are used for home brew and in micro brewery beers.

Alpha Acid Content varies with batch, please ask if you want to know the Alpha  Acid for the current batch. The alpha acid quoted is for a typical batch..Most of our hops were grown in the UK.
