Beer making Hop Pellets are whole hops that have been ground
and pressed into a mold. Resins seal the outside of hop pellets
when they are pressed, leaving the interior fresh. We prefer to
use hop pellets to ensure the freshness of our products. Store hops in your
refrigerator or freezer for longest life.

our suppliers, and we print the Alpha on the pack of hops.
