About Hop Hash
As whole cone hops are processed into pellets, a small amount of lupulin collects on the screens as they pass through toward the pellet die. Previously lost in production, we now have deliciously dank hop hash. Hop hash is recommended as a late whrilpool addition, just before knock out to fully capture the hop aromatics.
An American offspring of Hallertau, Crystal has a similarly mild aroma with floral and spice notes. However, the spice notes can be more prominent in Crystal than in Hallertau or other Hallertau offspring, contributing slight cinnamon, nutmeg, or pepper notes. Crystal is both very popular and increasingly popular among craft brewers, who most commonly use it in light American ales and continental style lagers.
