Description

Chinook is a very distinctive dual-purpose hop used in Ales for both bittering and flavor/aroma. Used a lot in IPA's. Distinct, medium intensity spice and pine characteristics with subtle notes of grapefruit. Some consider the bittering quality of this hop is a bit rough because it lingers in your mouth after swallowing. However, some brewers can't get enough. The flavor/aroma is spicy and unique, with a huge following of loyal fans.

Whole cone hops are typically the preffered format for dry hopping as they maintain contact with the beer by floating, they are easier to remove than pellets and they add a unique character to the beer. Adding whole cone hops directly to the mash tun is also a great way to add some extra hop flavor and to clarify your wort as it filters through the flowers.

how much whole hops equal 1 oz. of pellets?
Randy S Akam on Jan 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: For every 1 oz of pellet hops, you'll want to use 1.25-1.5 oz of whole hops (25-50% more).

First time buying whole hops here. Arrived in apparently very good condition, but it would be nice if the crop year was indicated on the labelling.
