  • Sorachi Ace Pellets

    Sorachi Ace Pellets

    Originally developed in the 1980s in Japan for Sapporo, recent years have seen Sorachi Ace gaining acreage in the Pacific Northwest. Its parentage includes Brewers Gold, Saaz, and Beikei No. 2. With a potent alpha acid level, Sorachi is a more than capable bittering hop, while its unique aromatics make it welcome in styles that embrace bright citrus character: saison, witbier, and exotic riffs on IPA. Sorachi Ace is distinctive with a suggestion of dill and unmistakable overtones of lemon, including wood polish, fruit pith, and Lemon Zinger tea. Hop Type: Dual-Purpose Origin: United States Alpha Acid: 12.0 % Similar Varieties: Southern Cross Common Styles: Pilsner, Saison, IPA

  • Motueka NZ Pellets

    Motueka (NZ) Pellets

    Motueka is the result of a breeding program aimed at creating novel aroma hops that impart unique flavors to beer. Against a background character reminiscent of its Saazer parent, Motueka offers vivacious notes of lemon, lime, and tropical fruits. The moderate alpha acid levels make it suitable for a wide range of applications, and it produces excellent results when employed in multiple additions. It offers a balanced bitterness that integrates well with high gravity brews and nicely compliments strong malt characteristics like sweetness and body. While typically used in traditional pilsners and Belgian ales, Motueka is gaining popularity in the American craft brewing scene. It's now being used in an increasingly wide range of American, English and continental styles, including, of course, the IPA.

  • Liberty US Pellets

    Liberty (US) Pellets

    Liberty came about in 1983 as part of the same USDA program that produced its half-sisters Crystal, Mt. Hood, and Ultra.
