Comet Hops (Per Lb) American Hop Pellets
Uniquely subtle aromas of grapefruit with grassy notes for American Pales, IPA’s, Lagers & Belgian Ales
Comet Pellet Hops
Selected in 1961 and released in 1974 by the USDA, Comet was originally utilized for its high alpha acid content and adapability to growing conditions in the Yakima Valley. Commercial production ceased in the early 1980s in favour of newer super-alpha hops, however, Comet has made a recent comeback, finding favour with some brewers in dual purpose applications for its subtle and unique, “wild American” aroma. Our comet pellet hops are among the freshest hops you’ll find from any home brew shop in Canada. We nitrogen flush and vacuum seal our hops in mylar foil bags immediately after pickup from local Chilliwack and Yakima growers and suppliers, and keep as little in stock as possible to ensure fresher, better tasting beer!
