Hops Utilisation Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find the questions we get asked the most regarding our hops.
Please click on one of the questions below to see the answer.

What are hops?

Hops are the female flowers of the hop plant (Humulus lupulus). They are used in brewing to add bitterness, flavor, and aroma to beer.

How do I use hops in brewing?

Hops can be used at different stages of the brewing process. They can be added during the boil to impart bitterness, added toward the end of the boil for flavor and aroma, and used for dry hopping during fermentation to enhance aroma.

How much hops should I use in my beer?

The amount of hops to use depends on various factors such as the beer style, desired bitterness, and hop characteristics. Recipes typically specify the amount of hops to use, but you can also experiment and adjust according to your taste preferences.

How do I measure hops?

Hops are typically measured in weight, usually in grams or ounces. A digital scale is a useful tool for accurately measuring hops for your brew.

Can I use whole hops or pellet hops?

Yes, you can use either whole hops or pellet hops. Pellet hops are more commonly used due to their ease of use and better storage stability. They also tend to have higher utilization rates than whole hops.

How long should I boil hops?

The boiling time for hops can vary depending on the recipe and desired characteristics. Bittering hops are usually boiled for about 60 minutes to extract bitterness, while aroma hops are added during the last 5-15 minutes of the boil to preserve their delicate aromas.

What is dry hopping?

Dry hopping involves adding hops directly to the fermenter during or after fermentation. This technique enhances the aroma of the beer without contributing much bitterness. Dry hopping is typically done for several days to a week.

How are Keg King hops packed & stored?

All our hops are vacuum packed in foil bags to eliminate UV and keep oxygen exposure to a minimin. They are always stored refigerated until they are shipped to you.

How should I store hops?

Hops should be stored in a cool, dark, and dry place to preserve their freshness and flavors. It is recommended to store hops in an airtight container or vacuum-sealed bag in the freezer for long-term storage.

Can I use different hop varieties in the same beer?

Absolutely! Mixing different hop varieties can create complex and unique flavor profiles in your beer. Experimenting with different combinations can be a fun way to explore the world of hops and create your own signature brews.
Remember, hops play a crucial role in beer brewing, and understanding how to use them effectively can greatly enhance your brewing experience. Don't be afraid to experiment and discover the diverse flavors and aromas that hops can bring to your homebrews.
