Short Pour – Hops: Getting to the Root of Brewing | Part 2 of 3

Northern Brewer sells hops in the form of a rhizome. Rhizomes are used versus seeds to guarantee you are only growing a female plant. Male hops do not form flavorful cones and will ruin your crop by producing seeds on your female plants rendering them unusable.

Short Pour – Hops: Getting to the Root of Brewing | Part 1 of 3

Hops come in an industry stable form, nicely pelletized, vacuum sealed on nitrogen and include the alpha and beta acid levels right on the package. There are over 70 varieties of hops in a climate controlled freezer at Northern Brewer just waiting to be purchased.

Every homebrewer dreams of the day when they can kiss bottling goodbye. Upgrading to a kegging system says a lot about you. You like control. Quality. You’re committed. So when you pour your hard earned cash into a draught system, foam is no longer acceptable.
