The common hop (Latin: Humulus lupulus) is a genus of climbing plant in the cannabis family. It is inextricably associated with beer, although it has not always been associated with it. And besides, it has a lot more interesting properties than just giving bitterness or the right aroma to some drinks.

We offer you high quality Type 90 hop pellets, which means that from a batch of 100 kg of dried hop cones of Lublin hops after cleaning, dedusting and drying, we practically get about 90 kg of ground and pressed into pellets of the finished product.

The product has a wide range of applications

Use of the product in brewing:

Hop pellets are used in the same way as hop cones, imparting bitterness and hop character to the beer. The amount of granulate that is added to the brewing boiler should be calculated based on the alpha acid content of the granulate in question, the use is estimated at about, 30-35%. Depending on the variety, bittering granules impart the desired bitterness to the beer and are most often boiled together with the wort over a longer period of time to obtain the highest possible isomerization and bitterness. Aroma granules are used to give the beer a hop character, and are most often boiled with the wort over a shorter period of time so as not to boil out all the hop character

We can summarize the action of hops in a huge nutshell:

  • Sleepiness,
  • Appetite improvement,
  • Sedative,
  • Diastolic,
  • Antibacterial,
  • Facilitating digestion.

Stress is one of the factors that adversely affects our body, and is also the cause and substrate of some civilization diseases. It is defined as a disturbance of mental and physical balance. Among its effects are nervousness, irritability, sleep problems and insomnia.

Both hop cones and lupulin contained in our hop granules have a calming effect, which is why they are recommended for people who live under constant stress, are nervously exhausted and have difficulty falling asleep. Bitterness contained in hops stimulates the secretion of saliva and gastric juice, facilitates digestion and assimilation of food. Therefore, hops can also be used for stomach problems. Due to its bacteriostatic properties, it is also recommended as an aid in the treatment of bacterial infections.

Some of our suggestions for using the offered hop pellets:

Food use:

Hops tea for a good night’s sleep and more. Pour hops granules in an amount of about 2g (a teaspoon) into a glass and pour boiling water, brew under a lid, strain and drink in divided portions. The tea drunk in the evening has a calming effect, relieves tension, nervousness, helps you fall asleep and sleep deeply. It combats insomnia especially in menopausal women. What is very important, drinking the tea does not cause the effect of stupefaction that is felt after the administration of sleeping drugs.

In addition, preparations made from hops cones have properties that improve digestion, diastolic on the digestive tract and diuretic. An infusion consumed during the day on an empty stomach stimulates the appetite, combats indigestion and flatulence, stimulates the secretion of digestive juices. To improve taste, it can be enriched with the addition of lemon balm, mint or lemon with the addition of honey.

Applications in cosmetics:

Hops are an ingredient in shampoos and face creams. Extracts of hops cone granules reduce hair loss. To do this, two tablespoons of cone granules can be poured into 1 cup of water and boiled for about 30 minutes. Set aside for half an hour, strain, then pour 250 g of water over the raw material again and boil for 30 minutes again. Set aside and strain. Combine the extracts and massage into the scalp. Apply a towel for 15-20 minutes and rinse.

A beer rinse has similar properties, but the extract of hop cone granules has a more cumulative nutritional content for our hair. It is enough to rinse your head with it once a week. Your hair will be full of shine. Our grandmothers successfully used this rinse more than once.

Antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects make the tonic made from hops granules great for acne skin care.

During production, we distinguish the following stages

  • selection of batches of certified hops with the desired quality parameters
  • homogenization of batches of hop cones in a belt homogenizer
  • separation of foreign materials (pneumatic-magnetic cleaner)
  • drying the hops in a belt dryer to a moisture content of less than 9% of water by a stream of hot air
  • cooling of the dried cones before milling
  • milling of hops on a beater mill
  • homogenization of hop powder in a mixer
  • granulation of the powder on a ring granulator
  • granulate cooling on a belt cooler
  • homogenization of the granulate in the hopper
  • granulate packing
