We only answer the important questions here at Beer Hawk and this week it is: should you be using pelletised (real word!) hops or whole cone
Whole cone hops:
Whole hops are often used in dry hopping as they are easier to remove from the beer and may give a slightly fresher aroma than pellet hops.
Pellet hops: Pellet hops are produced by grinding up the whole hop cones and pressing them into pellets. When used for bittering, pellet hops have a higher extraction efficiency by weight than whole hops. They are also less subject to oxidising than whole hops.
