Crystal US Hops

$9.94$79.95 Incl. GST

Crystal US hops are known for their mild woody, floral and spicy aromatic properties.  Oregon grown and craft pelleted typical beer style uses include Pale Ale, Pilsner, IPA and Stout.



Bred in 1983 by the USDA, Crystal is a triploid aroma-type cultivar from Hallertau Mittelfrüh, Cascade, Brewer’s Gold and Early Green.
Primarily grown in Oregon and has become increasingly popular among craft brewers due to its versatility in a variety of beer styles.
Crystal aroma is mild and pleasant with a delicate blend of spices and flowers.  The variety is versatile and popular in craft and homebrewing.
Crosby Type-90 Crystal Hop Pellets are a softer “craft pellet”.  These pellets are approximately 20% less dense than industry standard pellets.  The soft pellet comes apart quickly when used as a dry hop, and provides better hop utilization in the kettle, whirlpool and fermenter.

The low pelletizing temperatures at Crosby Hop Farm also work to preserve hop oils, aromatics, and alpha.
