Chinook Pellet Hops (1 lb)


Chinook is a high alpha-acid hop with an acceptable aroma profile. It is typically used in American style pale ales, IPAs, stouts, porters, barleywines, and lagers as a bittering hop.

Chinook Hops will add 12%-14% alpha acid content to your hops schedule. It is a dual purpose alpha variety, and is good for the beginning of the boil, or mid-additions. Chinook is popular in American style Pale Ale and India Pale ale craft beers, but extends itself well to Seasonal Ales, and darker beers including Porter, Stout, and Barley Wines. It has a heavy aroma, and somewhat spicy bouquet. Some piney and herbal notes will be evident in a fresh batch.
