PIH Blend – Hops Pellets
The aroma profile of this PIH hops blend is mixed between 3 hop varieties: S. Star (70%), S. Promise (20%), S. Dawn (10%).
Isomerised Hop Pellets can be used as a replacement for cone hops or Type 90 Pellets in the kettle. Expect an improvement of up to 50% in utilisation over that of cone hops or pellets. Because the αacids are mostly isomerised, high bitterness utilisation will be achieved almost irrespective of the time of addition. Although a good utilisation of bittering components can be achieved with Isomerised Pellets added late to the wort boil, this will also impact the hop aroma imparted to the beer. We therefore recommend that Isomerised pellets are added early in the boil for bitterness, with conventional Type 90 or Type 45 pellets added late for hop aroma.
