The hop cultivar Comet was bred as a high alpha variety for the states of Washington and Idaho. Nowadays this hop, which stands out due to its very large cones, is only grown on a small area.
The BBC Pure Hop Pellet™ is produced using a finer, more uniform grind than standard Type 90 pellets. A sub-zero process – milling and sieving takes place at approx. -35°C (-31 °F) – to prevent hop resins and essential oils from oxidation. The resulting pellets offer a more intense aroma and flavour.
