Lupulin is the small yellow glands inside of a hop cone that contain alpha-acids and essential oils.  Through proprietary processing, Hopsteiner is able to separate the lupulin glands from the bract to provide a higher concentrate pellet containing less vegetal matter and more of the resins that boost flavor and aroma. Lupulin Pellets™ are a great option for your late hop additions and for dry hopping.

 A high alpa acid hop from New Zealand. Nelson Sauvin is a highly prized, dual-purpose hop that has been used in a wide range of styles by craft brewers. It has a distinctive aroma, similar to Sauvignon Blanc wine or crushed gooseberries. Notes of passionfruit and tangerine are apparent as well. Nelson Sauvin has a low cohumulone content, which imparts a smooth bitterness.
