Dried hop cones compressed into bale.
Our pressed cones are dried and compressed into farm bales. These bales can either be sold directly to Brewers or are later repackaged for craft brewers into pallets.
After pressing into farm bales, they are checked for moisture content and sampled for grading and laboratory testing then placed into cold storage facilities to ensure the hops flavour characteristics and freshness at time of harvest are preserved. The bales are then either held for pelleting operations or shipped direct under refrigeration to brewers who continue to purchase hops in this fashion.
Pelletised hops in various size packages.
Our hops are grown, dried and baled onsite before being transported in cold storage in a bale form into market where they are pelletised and distributed directly to Brewers.
Whole bales are decompressed using a bale-breaker. The hammer mill grinds whole leaf hops into powder that retains all of the natural vegetative and lupulin ingredients.
A superior alternative to other hop forms, pellets have wide commercial acceptance. Pellets are made by pulverising the hop to a powder then extruding the powder through the die of the press designed to keep the product as cool as possible at all times, even before the final cooling process, the fresh hop flavour and aromatics are retained. Finally back flushed with inert gas and vacuum packed, Hop Revolution pellets are ideal for brewers around the world.
