Ah. I was under the impression that hopsdirect pelletized their own hops but maybe they only pelletize their OWN hops. That would make more sense since some of the imported varieties are only available either / or.
I'd be surprised if HD did the pelletization themselves.
I knew this was in the back of my head from somewhere.
I was just now adding the Spalter to my basket and noticed this at the top of the imported hops pellet list:
"We pelletize our own hops as well as most all of our imported hops on the farm in our "California Pellet Mill" each winter. We process T-90 hop pellets and package into (4.2 m) multi-layered, high barrier mylar bags with a nitrogen flush. We are in the process of moving from a tight, hard vacuum the new industry standard "soft packs"."
